    Not necessarily. The Eastern churches have never used instruments in worship (with the exception, IIRC, of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church), even though instruments were available. Some Greek churches have organs in them, but AFAIK they are only used for the staging of religious plays.
    Our church sometimes uses a full orchestra, sometimes a smaller ensemble, and sometimes only the piano and pipe organ. All are appropriate and all are used in a manner that adds to the music, not overpower it and become just a raucous din.

    Remember, God is a God of order, not of chaos, and some "music" is pure chaos.
    Wait, I thought you were just meeting at home, not attending church (well before this whole COVID thing developed)?
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I didn't say a church had to use instruments, just that there is no prohibition against them.

    Yes. That's what we are doing. We been live streaming for a number of years as well as watching archived sermons. We consider it "our church".
