By Channel 5 Published: 05 Jun 2020 Audio: English

The Christian churches first suspended their services in mid-February as COVID-19 erupted among their followers. As mosques and temples followed suit, what measures can the leaders of Singapore's major religions take to make sure their congregations do not lose faith as the circuit breaker disrupts some of their holiest festivals of the year ? Ustaz Syed Mustafa Alsagoff must find a way to reach out to his followers as COVID-19 separates family and community during Islam's holy month of Ramadan. Christian pastors Alby Yip and Ignatius Yeo are broken-hearted by their empty pews, but they must find a way to open their churches to the most needy. Venerable Shi You Wei of Di Zang Lin helps his followers rediscover their Buddhist rituals online, while Raja Segar and his team go beyond religion to lend a helping hand.
