Christmas Eve webcast a first for Lutheran Church–Canada

January 4, 2010 One Comment

STONY PLAIN, ALBERTA – More than 75 viewers watched a live, webcast of the Christmas Eve service from St. Matthew Lutheran Church.

An additional 67 viewers watched a recorded version of the service online.

The webcast was part of a new move by the Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) to provide live online coverage of church events.

“For some, this was their Christmas Eve service,” said Ian Adnams, director of communications for LCC. “We are grateful to the congregation, Pastors Bill Ney and Jim Fritsche and technician Paul Ney for making this possible.”

During the past year, the LCC webcast three district conventions, the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League–Canada (LWML–C) national convention, seminary graduations, as well as seminars and workshops.

Churches with high-speed internet access can webcast their services, too.

“We learn something new with each webcast,” said Adnams. “Although we still encounter some technical wrinkles, we are approaching each project with a number of backup plans.”
