A family watches general conference on their television, one of many ways Latter-day Saints and others can enjoy the Spirit and inspiration of conference messages this April.

While concerns surrounding the worldwide pandemic have led to canceled and postponed events around the world, the 190th Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will go on—available entirely online and across radio waves for the first time.

Previously, President Russell M. Nelson described the upcoming April general conference—which occurs during the bicentennial of the First Vision—as “different from any previous conference” and encouraged us to prepare for it accordingly (“Closing Remarks,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2019, 122).

Referring to April’s unprecedented conference, the First Presidency stated, “Messages of truth, hope, and inspiration will prevail as we commemorate the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and seek to hear Him” (First Presidency letter, Mar. 19, 2020).

Consider these ways to view or listen live on Saturday and Sunday, April 4–5, and any time after conference at your convenience. Invite others to tune in as well to hear messages from the Lord.
