Easter services in Exmouth are going to look a little different this year as churches turn to technology to support their congregations.

All churches have been closed as the battle against the coronavirus continues but that hasn’t stopped some churches providing their usual services.

Some have taken to streaming live services on their social media platforms and websites, while others have recorded videos which have aired online.

The coronavirus lockdown has led some to wonder what will happen to the traditional Easter services.

Here’s what the Exmouth churches are planning to do for Easter:
