In this time of COVID-19, we have moved church online. St. Augustine's has been live-streaming via Facebook and, while not quite like Face-to-Face church, it has been pretty good. In the process we have been reflecting of the benefit of live streaming even beyond COVID-19:
- Participation from members far off or unable to leave home
- If people miss a service, they can get caught up
- Turning church "inside-out" so people curious about what church is, can check things out from a distance. We have nothing to hide.
- A way for the online world and physical church to coexist within one another.
For a start, we have our eye on an appropriate camera and some hardware to get us in the game. The total cost is about $1700 for everything we would need.

This is the progress bar for the campaign.
