Each Sunday, 250 people sit before Horsham Church of Christ Pastor Simon Risson. They come for many reasons - to hear his message, practice and celebrate their faith and be part of a wider community.
For the foreseeable future, they'll be reflecting on this message via their computer screens, mobile phone or iPad.
In a time of uncertainty when people may look to their faith, Australian churches have closed their doors as a result of the federal government's ban on gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
It's been a week of thinking on their feet for Mr Risson and his ministry team, as guidelines on social distancing rapidly transformed into a full ban on public gatherings.
The ban has prompted a rethink of the traditional ways of ministry - a challenge for smaller churches.
"It just shifted really quickly," Mr Risson, who has been serving the Horsham community in Victoria's Wimmera region for 18 years, said. "Within a week we were online and that was a little different than we imagined it would be, we had some technical difficulties.
"We had a team of people working flat-out to make that accessible to people."
With everyone in isolation, Mr Risson says online has become "highly competitive all of a sudden".
"And it's a real challenge. You can get online and watch anything in the world ... that's the reality.
"There are some professional churches across the globe who have been doing this stuff for years and all of a sudden we're thrust into it."
His first live-streamed Sunday service notched up 6500 views.
"To preface that, numbers aren't everything because you could have the biggest church but it's not really impactful or making a difference in people's lives.
"I don't know if people watched the whole service, we kept it to an hour, it was weird, it was really simple, it was really dynamic.

"I found even communicating was really strange, I felt awkward but people enjoyed it. People were saying they couldn't access it on their computer - so they got on their phone, they told their family and friends about it overseas.
"This is crazy, this is a whole new world - here we go. You've got to step into it."
To try and maintain that face-to-face connection, Mr Risson launched himself into the world of Facebook live this week. It reached 4500 people.
"It doesn't have to be professional, I've tried to keep it personal.
"There is a lot of news and information out there, and I don't understand everything, and for me, I think I've wanted to pierce through all of that and declare some hope, some life and give people something to reflect on.
"What does this mean for us as a people, what does this mean for us as a community, what will this mean."
And, just because you are in social isolation, doesn't mean you have to be disconnected.
"One of the things we've said to our people is we need to be smart, we need to be wise and we need to be examples in our community.
"We need to be mindful without being fearful - that social isolation is smart but we don't have to be socially disconnected.
"I've set up some stuff and I don't even know if it's going to work because not everyone is technologically-minded and that's another aspect to it."
To reach those people, church teams across the country are picking up the good old-fashioned phone to connect to those who are vulnerable or in isolation.
"I had someone say to me, 'I've been making all of these phone calls because of this crisis and it occurred to me why aren't I doing this all the time'.
"I thought there you go - exactly. We've learnt some things already."
It's all about finding new ways.
"There's plenty of new technology and if you don't like technology, write a letter, send a card, ring someone up. I think we focus on all the new ways that we forget the old - some of the old ways are really valuable and we're doing them right now.
"We can find ways to connect and it's important we find ways to do that."
At the end of all of this, Mr Risson hopes we'll all have a new longing and appreciation for connection.
"For me, I hope it doesn't create more fear or heighten the isolation but increases our desire for connection that is full of compassion, full of hope and full of peace and invites us to discover again who we are and who we are made to be."
