Maintaining their ministry online

Recording part of his online church service to be broadcast on Sundays is Knox Church minister the Rev Dr Kerry Enright in Dunedin yesterday.

Dr Enright said the team members each recorded their segments and sent them to a ‘‘tech-savvy young person’’ who edited it together and uploaded it to YouTube.

The video included most of what a usual church service was, such as prayer and organ-playing.

There were about 60 people watching when the pre-recorded service went live yesterday morning, but many would watch it later in the day.

Last week’s recording had almost 200 views altogether, he said.

The service had attracted a very positive reaction and people were grateful they could enjoy church under lockdown, he said.
