What time will the live stream start?
The live stream will commence at 9 am on Sunday morning. Lord willing it will be available every Sunday morning even after we resume our normal worship gathering.
If the screen still appears inactive at 9am please be patient and wait up to 2 minutes for the stream to start. The quality may poor and the picture jittery for the first 30 seconds to a minute. This is normal and should improve the longer you view the stream.
What if I am late?

How fast does my internet need to be?
We suggest an internet connection with a download speed of at least 4Mbps for the best results. The video will still play if you have a slower connection, but it may be of poor quality and/or pause spontaneously for small durations during the feed.
We suggest you disconnect all other devices except the device you are viewing on if you are worried about the connection speed.
How much data will I need?
WARNING: Watching a live stream may deplete your data if you have a capped package. At the highest quality for our feed (720p) it will consume roughly 25MB a minute. This means that an hour of streaming will use 1.5GB of your data. Please be aware of this.
For the brave, you can click the small white ‘settings’ cog on the screen and lower the video quality if you want to use less data.
