Online Services

Livestreaming has provided the parish with a great opportunity to engage more widely with people through worship, concerts, and seminars, but it has also brought a challenge to permanently install suitable equipment so that we can go on doing it in the future. We need your help to raise around $50,000 to purchase the kit required as well as find enough volunteers to establish a group to run it. Please go to the Media Equipment Appeal Page to find out how to donate to this vital project.
