Introduction - Making Video Recordings
There are both advantages and disadvantages
of having a video recording system installed in the church.
Some of the most obvious ones are as follows:-
Ability to provide housebound and sick members with
videos of services.
Recordings can be sent to missionaries, students, and
others church members who for some reason or other cannot
Equipment is available "In house" for times
when "overflows" may be necessary, e.g. Easter,
Harvest, Christmas and other special services.
Ability to show "close-ups" on projection
screens of children's address, baptisms etc., improving vision
for people at the rear of the church.
Ability to provide video recordings of special events
such as baptisms, weddings, and so on, without having to bring
in a lot of equipment.
May be distracting at times if not operated thoughtfully
Operators required - more people who are effectively
"working" rather than worshiping at services.
Hopefully this article will give you food
for thought, and you can consider whether or not introducing
video recordings is something your church would find worthwhile.
