VEENENDAAL, NETHERLANDS - NOVEMBER 23: Churchgoers raise their hands while singing inside their car during a drive-in church service of the Evangelical church Mosaic 0318 on November 23, 2014 in Veenendaal, Netherlands. The church service, that is held each Sunday, could not go on as usual because the church hall, where the service is held, is filled with hens, chickens, pigeons, rabbits and guinea pigs for the annual exhibition of the Veenendaalse rabbit and Poultry Breeders Association. Because of the transport ban in the Netherlands on live animals, due to the spreading bird flu, these animals could not be moved. The church, that receives more than a thousand visitors each week, decided to ask their followers to come to the parking lot outside the church hall to follow the church service on their radio inside their cars where it was broadcasted through a local radio station.
