Live Streaming in Church – Is it here to stay?
None of us need reminding about the difficulties faced throughout 2020, in particular for any establishment or event that relies on a congregation getting together to celebrate, worship or simply be with family and friends.
Houses of Worship is a sector and community that has been hit extremely hard by the pandemic; however it has also brought closeness amongst people due to many churches engaging in streaming technology. Streaming, live or otherwise certainly isn’t new. Before this year virtually everyone with a smart phone, tablet or laptop has at some point streamed music via you tube and probably face timed friends or relatives.
Online engagement with the church has significantly increased and this is markedly with people who would not normal regard themselves as “church goers”. This shows the power of engagement through online services and particularly streaming. We’re seeing investement into church audio visual installations as a result, hopefully we can help people to understand this a little easier on this page.
