Is the shape of the Church changing?

With the world changing so fast, and people living busier lives, does the shape of the Church need to adapt and change to keep up with the times or do people need to slow down and begin to value and appreciate what the Christ community has to offer?

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.

And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favour with all the people.

And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
— Acts 2:42-47
