Ordinary 30A25 October 2020

This week’s online service will be a Livestream of our 10:30am service today. Please return closer to 10:30am to join in the Livestream. It will also be available afterwards to view.

Today our internet connection was unstable and did not allow us to livestream.
We did record the service, but when we went to upload it here, we discovered there was also problems with the audio! Oh no!
Seems like the gremlins got into the tech today, alas.
We invite you to watch one of our previous pre-recorded service instead.
(You can find these further down the page).
We know it’s not the same.
Our apologies for any inconvenience. Hopefully all will be running again by next week’s service.

We hope you feel part of the community as you attend the service with us live this morning.

Differences you will notice between our Livestream and our previous pre-recorded services:

    • One camera angle for the whole service
    • Fluctuations in audio quality depending on how close to the microphone a speaker is standing
    • Less smooth camera movement – we are required to move the camera at certain points during the service (1. to view the pulpit during the sermon, & 2. to focus on a window during the distribution of holy communion). Since this is done live, and the camera is located quite high up, smooth control of panning is not always achieved.
    • the quality of the music recording may be less than ideal. We are still working on solutions for sharing the organ audio better.  

Our Livestreams are run by volunteers, not professional camera people, so please enjoy our real and raw style.

For parishioners of All Saints, make your weekly gift, please visit this page.
For parishioners of other parishes who are connecting in with our online services at this time, please contact you regular church to organise how to send your offering to them.

Remember to keep in contact with each other. Give someone a call while having your own morning tea. We may be dispersed, but we are still one community. Have a holy, and refreshing, Sunday.
