I was looking at the numbers of viewers we are getting from our broadcast services and we seem to be doing quite well. To date we have done 11 broadcast services with a total viewership of 957 people. That is an average of 87 people per broadcast. If you consider our average attendance before we had to close was around 50 per service that is a surprising 74% increase.

We of course very much look forward to opening the church again soon for public worship, But we are highly considering and planning to continue to broadcast our services. A huge thanks to all who are working hard to make these broadcasts happen.
