We understand the value a place of worship has to the wellbeing of people. The sense of community that they give and the good that they do. When congregation restrictions make it difficult for full services to go ahead, technology steps in to help....
The online church is not a new idea, and many city centre churches have been recording and live streaming their services for years, but for the smaller churches this technology has always been unnecessary and expensive. Until now.
Chris Thomas, Director of Litenet, wrote an article for the Association of MBAs on The Growth of the Live Streaming sector.
We have devised a package of equipment and installation that can get you online quickly, cost-effectively and with great results! We've worked with manufacturers and distributors of some of the broadcasting industry's big names to produce a live streaming solution that even the most inexperienced of users can operate.
Live streaming your service can help you reach out to more people, more regularly. Using social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook Live you can interact with your audience, and allow them to interact with each other in the various comments sections.

Streaming live demands great internet connectivity. It needs to be fast, stable and reliable.
In most cases internet speed is measured in downstream bandwidth. The adverts you see and hear on the radio or television celebrate big numbers, but they're only telling you about the downstream, or download, speeds. Live streaming works the other way around, and is reliant on the upstream speeds. A minimum of 6Mbps upload bandwidth is required for a good HD stream to somewhere like YouTube for example. You can test your internet connection by visiting speedtest.net
We have some great solutions for internet connectivity. Fixed line fibre broadband is available to many city and town centre churches, and fast 4G broadband is ideal for rural churches and can provide a vital connection for those where no fixed line infrastructure is available.
We also provide mesh WiFi systems, data networking, cabling and VoIP telephony for church offices
