If you are planning to live streaming your service or event, A Church Near You can enable people to access it online.
Over the coming weeks, we will be promoting all live streamed events and services, so please do ensure you have added to A Church Near You all the live streamed events you are planning.
We have added the ‘Live Stream’ tag, which you can add to your relevant services and events, making it easier for the service to be found. Get help with adding tags to your services and events here.
You can also add the link to the Live Stream.
When adding or editing an event:
- In the description of the service, give instructions on exactly how people can watch the live stream. Will this be via your Facebook page or YouTube channel?
- In the Tags section, add ‘Live stream’ by clicking ‘Change Tags’ and ticking the ‘Live Stream’ box in the list. This will be the first option to appear.
In the ‘Optional details’ box add the link to the live stream in the URL box. The two most common platforms used are YouTube and Facebook. If you’ve scheduled a YouTube video, you could create a page on A Church Near You with the video embedded so people can watch that directly on the ACNY site. Find out how to do that here.
We also recommend that you add a page about Live Streaming that explains how it works and how to access it, making it as accessible as possible for worshipers. If you’re using YouTube to stream, you can add the URL link to your scheduled live video so that people can watch directly through ACNY.
Find out more about live streaming your services and events on our Labs Learning blog here.
