Experiencing church online has really highlighted how important it is for Gateway to have an online presence that will allow anyone who can’t physically make it to our services to still be impacted by what God is doing in our congregation.
The Broadcast team is continuing to grow as the demands for our broadcast content continues to grow too. Our team are trained to not only operate the equipment, but they are tasked to capture the very essence of what the Holy Spirit is doing in each of our services. Our main aim is to capture what God is doing and provide a ‘window’ for those who cannot be there to look in and be a part of it.
Our team of camera operators and visual mixers work together to create an amazing viewing experience that makes the online audience feel like they are in the room and part of the service.
Our Sound team support and serve our worship team and congregation at Gateway. They ensure that everyone who attends in-person and those watching online have a great and immersive experience.
Our Sound team work very closely with our Broadcast team to ensure that visual and audio work seamlessly together to provide the best experience of Gateway both in-person and online.
The displays are primarily used to display the song lyrics during praise and worship. This helps the audience both in the room and at home participate in the singing of songs that forms a very important part of the worship experience.
The Visual displays are also able to display our in-service announcements and pre-service rotation videos, which are key to informing the viewers of what events are coming up in the near future.
We also have the ability to record and publish podcasts that are created to inspire and encourage our listeners.
It has also enabled people to look back at other events happening in Gateway such as Servolution, Flourish, children’s and youth events and conferences and remember the fun, laughter and joy experienced by those there.
Photography has also been a key asset that is used in all our communication streams such as the website, social media, digital and printed media. Our in-house photography allows all our media to reflect an authentic perspective of Gateway.
Our editors work to provide subtle enhancements to the original photo taken whilst trying not to change the message that the photographer wanted to portray too much. Our editing process also allows us to use the photographs taken on all our digital and print media seamlessly.
This allows us to create highlight reels of these events for people to look back on and enjoy. It also allows us to create authentic videos for upcoming events in the future using our own video footage.
Website & SEO
Website users are able to find out information about our services and other events, use the embedded calendar to sign up to various events and find out further information about our leadership and other resources available to them.
The Gateway social media platforms which currently consist of Facebook, Instagram and the Gateway website help to promote any upcoming events, broadcast our Sunday services and also to engage our followers with encouraging text, image and video content.
Staying sensitive to how the Holy Spirit is moving is paramount. It is also equally important to be aware of others and what is happening through the worship band, ministers and congregation. There should always be accountability to those leading.
Manna Ministries, a local theatre company, will be working with Gateway to put on our Christmas 2021 Production ‘Relentless’.
