The troubled Hillsong Church is once again in hot water, this time to take advantage of COVID freedom for Australian religious institutions.

The South South Wales Department of Health’s regional government department has reprimanded megachurch for allowing young parishioners to sing and dance at an annual youth camp.

Singing and dancing are now banned in New South Wales as a Covid measure, but religious institutions are an exception.

However, recent camp photos posted on Hillsong’s social media accounts show people doing more than just gathering for prayer, which was designed to protect all freedom.

Instead, unmasked teenage participants in the videos danced to non-religious pop music, the Guardian reported.

“While the order does not apply to religious services, it does apply to major resorts and the incident clearly undermines the spirit and purpose of the order to help maintain public safety,” New South Wales Health Minister Brad Hazzard said in a statement Thursday night. reports the Guardian.

“Singing and dancing in hospitality venues and nightclubs, moving and mingling in and around these venues, the effects of alcohol consumption, and the use of masks in these conditions for food and drink consumption is high risk due to removal, ”said an NSW health spokesman. Australia explained the rule logic to Tuesday. “People who attend religious ceremonies usually stay in firm positions, and masks are mandatory for these closed meetings.”

Speaking to The Guardian, a Hillsong spokesman said the children’s program was not a secular dance.

“These events are annual high school summer camps and are nothing like a music festival,” the spokesman said. “Outdoor Christian services are held during the camp, but that’s a small part of the program … and any singing is just a small part of each service (a video of the program circulating on social media today shows a few minutes of the program).”

Hillsong did not immediately respond to The Post’s comment request.
