New Audio-Visual & Livestream System Appeal

New Audio-Visual & Livestream System Appeal

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 live-stream system.

As a result, the PCC and diocese has granted a faculty to install:

  • a multi-screen AV system
  • an enhanced audio system
  • a live-stream system

Systems

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 reasonably straightforward to operate. The installation will provide an enhanced audio-visual and livestream experience for the church and community.

Cost

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, so 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.

Time

This system is being installed in Autumn 2021.
