Online Training

Broadcasting from a Place of Worship

Monday, November 2: 19.30 - 21.00

The Diocese of Leeds Communications and DAC Teams will be hosting a webinar, exploring how churches can best broadcast worship online from their buildings.

At the end of March churches across the Diocese, and indeed the country, were quick to adapt and have since discovered the possibilities that the online world has for them to reach a new audience and become more discoverable to a population that is increasingly inhabiting the online space. Now, as churches begin to open their buildings to host services with congregations once more, a new missional horizon online continues to present itself.

The webinar will be held on Zoom and will include presentations from different speakers, including church members involved in broadcasting services online. The newly launched guide, 'Broadcasting worship online from a church building', written and produced by the diocesan Communications and DAC Teams will also be presented as a helpful resource for parishes.

Topics covered will include: 

  • Key considerations when broadcasting online
  • How to remian inclusive 
  • Live streaming equipment and set ups
  • How some churches have done it
  • How to get more help
