What was the challenge you identified?

We faced the challenge of keeping our community connected during Covid-19. We had to adhere to government guidelines for all of our temple activities such as prayers, festivals, births and funerals.

What was your solution?

We offered religious services online using Zoom. Some of our devotees were not used to using Zoom, so we supported and educated them to help get them online and stay involved.

What difference has it made?

Taking our services online helped to support the spiritual health and wellbeing of our community – helping people to stay connected and combat loneliness and social isolation.
Our tailored support enabling people to access online worship helped tackle loneliness and stay connected, in addition to supporting the spiritual health and wellbeing of the community. Radha Krishna Temple, Romford
