Church and Ministry Streaming Service - Piksel Faith
Churches that live stream their services reach more people.
During the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic many churches have turned to the internet in order to continue services. Services can be “live streamed” or recorded and offered via the church website or a hosting service. So what does this mean?
Live streaming is similar to watching television where a program is advertised at a particular day and time. People wanting to view the program, switch on their television, select the channel and view the program. Today we are able to offer live programs via the internet, which means people wanting to view the program can go to a location on the internet and click a button to view the service. Churches who have adopted this approach have reported increases in attendance due to the easy access to services. By live streaming services, churches have not only been able to continue during quarantine periods but have also been able to attract people who could not normally attend services in person. This would include elderly people, who are not able to attend church in person and those with disabilities that make church attendance very difficult.
There may be new people living in your community who are nervous about attending a new church. Streaming services gives them the opportunity to experience the church in the safety of their own home, thus giving them the confidence to attend in person at a later date. Some people may not be able to attend the service due to the times they are held. A streamed service can be recorded and made available as a video on demand. This allows people to view the service at a time and place that is convenient for them. This in turn makes the church more accessible to those that do not normally attend. For members who attend regularly, a streaming service will allow them to attend if they are away from home for any reason. Services can be viewed from anywhere as long as there is an internet connection.
