Churches throughout Estonia remain closed due to the ongoing emergency situation, however many Good Friday and Easter services will nonetheless be broadcast via TV, the radio and online. ERR's overview includes a variety of denominations as well as services in Estonian, Russian and English.

In a statement addressed to church congregations and the people of Estonia, the Estonian Council of Churches (EKN) called on people to pray and act in the name of people suffering due to the pandemic as well as the sustainability of community.

"Pray for everyone, but especially for the peace of those loved ones who have already been touched by the virus," the EKN said. "Ask the Creator for wisdom for doctors and researchers to cure and halt this virus, and for governments and international organizations in the fight against it worldwide. Do this together during the holidays and church services ahead, which are being brought to us via television and the internet. Be grateful for this opportunity and use it. Help them strengthen our spiritual cohesion and bring holiday cheer to our hearts, as expressed by Jesus' words: 'Because I live, you also will live.' (John 14:19)"
