While Bathurst churches will be allowed to host more than 50 people from Wednesday, it doesn't automatically mean they'll get to host larger crowds.
From July 1, the NSW Government will ease its capped limit on parishioners in places of worship, however, social distancing will still have to be observed.
That means many churches will not be allowed more than 50, in fact some have not been able to reach that limit because of social distancing rules, such as the All Saints Anglican Cathedral, which can only host 35 people.
Anglican Diocese of Bathurst Bishop Mark Calder said the church is also limited in other things it can do.
"The social distancing by four metres square is the most limiting factor," he said.
"As well, we can't sing, which is a bit bizarre and sad. We're also not doing morning tea.
"Those people are glad to be together but it doesn't feel normal for sure."
The congregation at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church at Kelso is not meeting in the church building, rather people are gathering in the hall as it's easier to observe social distancing.
"They can fit a few more people in and because it's seats and not pews, it's easier to manage," he said.
One church is set to benefit from eased restrictions on Wednesday is The Assumption Church, being able to fit a maximum of 60 people when social distanced.
Catholic Diocese of Bathurst Bishop Michael McKenna said some churches will benefit from eased restrictions, while some won't.
"We've obviously got some big churches like Dubbo and some very small ones like Mullion Creek and each of them, depending on how big they are, will be able to have more or less people," he said.
An extra Mass at The Assumption has been added at 9am on Sunday morning due to extra demand.
Bathurst Presbyterian Church Pastor Tristan Merkel said he's working towards making the most of the eased restrictions.
"Our goal is to have as many people as possible, safe and comfortable when they're hearing about Jesus," he said.
