During the Covid-19 pandemic, Holy Trinity successfully introduced online worship services, including some that were live-streamed. This made it possible for us to continue to worship together every week, despite the varying restrictions on meeting in person in church.
We have had to learn quickly, but the experience has taught us:
our existing AV equipment needs upgrading
there are exciting opportunities for our worship and mission in the future if we install a full livestream system.
As a result, the PCC has approved a proposal to install permanently in the church:
a multiscreen AV system
an enhanced audio system
a live-stream system
The three systems are integral to each other to ensure that the online output and the experience in the church is of high quality, whilst being reasonable straightforward to operate. The installation will provide an enhanced audio-visual and livestream experience for the church and community.
Please see www.htnorthwood.co.uk/AVSystem if you are interested in a more detailed specification.
The full cost of the system is expected to be £90,000. A donation from a charitable trust will form a major part of the funding, but we need a further £25,000 to complete the project. If we raise more than this, we will be able to implement phase two of the project, which is to install two additional projectors and screens in the side aisles and replace the ageing radio microphones.
Subject to the approval of the Diocese of London, it is hoped that the system can be installed in Autumn 2021.
