Hillsong Apologizes to Gov’t after Church Kids caught ‘Singing and Dancing’ to Secular Music at Youth Camp

Hillsong Church has apologized to the New South Wales government after a now-deleted video emerged showing tons of teens attending their youth camp dancing and singing maskless in close proximity, violating the state’s strict Covid-19 public health orders. The singing and dancing were not during worship time, but rather a concert and DJ show.

This revelation led Premier Dominic Perrottet to explain that he was “completely shocked” by the video. In NSW, public health orders ban singing and dancing at music festivals, hospitality venues, nightclubs, entertainment facilities and major recreation facilities, with churches being given an exception for worship – but not for this.

South West Health Minister Brad Hazzard explained, “While the order does not apply to religious services, it does apply to major recreation facilities and this event is clearly in breach of both the spirit and intent of the order, which is in place to help keep the community safe…”

In response to this, Hillsong issued a statement on their website, noting:

These camps have a Christian focus and include worship services. Over a three-day duration the percentage of time spent singing is minor. However we regret giving any perception that we were not playing our part to keep NSW safe and we sincerely apologise to the community at large. Our heart is for people, and loving and caring for all people is at the core of our church.

We have since spoken to NSW Health and received instruction to cease congregant/student singing and dancing during the services that occur on the campsite and have immediately and willingly enacted that instruction.

    Where? That picture depicts something like out of the 60s new age aquarius .

    As in the day of Noah ; we are there.

    2Tim4:3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound[a] teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

    2 Timothy 3:1
    But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come.

    Jude 1:18
    when they said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow after their own ungodly desires.”

  8. As I said elsewhere, evangelicalism was designed to make Christianity compatible with modernity and secular culture. It’s a feature, not a bug. I too don’t see the “Christian focus”.

    On the bright side, this event was probably more effective than anything produced by Moderna, Pfizer, or J&J at producing lifelong, broad based immunity to Covid-19 with a much lower risk of serious side effects considering the demographic involved.
