The burgeoning presence of church online is considered in depth in a brand-new series of seminars on CRE TV.
Presented by hands-on professionals from Tamworth-based Novum AV, a company which helped many churches get online as the pandemic progressed, key questions about streaming are covered – for services, prayer meetings and study times.
The experts don’t just give their opinions, but bring in representatives from the many churches, missions and organisations they have helped over the past 12 months.
‘They describe how going online has not only helped them continue their teaching and pastoral care but also assisted them in reaching outsiders who would not otherwise attend church,’ explained CRE event director Brett Pitchfork. ‘We are delighted to share their observations and advice on CRE TV.’
When Covid-19 struck, one church that had met in a school began streaming their services –to find they were not only helping their usual membership but attracting many other people.
The first five presentations identify problems and solutions, from the number of cameras needed, to whether the service is to be broadcast on Zoom, YouTube or Facebook. There are also discussions on audio and lighting issues.
The final episode – The Future of Bricks with New-Found Clicks – is a lengthy interview between Novum founder Tim Jacques and a number of church and mission leaders who have streamed church services with success and are now considering what it will mean for the future.
