What Equipment Do I Need To Livestream A Church Service?

You will need a camera with clean HDMI output. We recommend a camera that can shoot 1080p at 60fps or 720p at 120 fps. The higher the resolution and frame rate, the better quality your stream will be.

The next thing you will need to do is get the proper equipment. If you are looking for a cheap solution, then this can be done by purchasing an adapter that allows your computer or laptop to connect directly with your camera’s HDMI cable. This will give you high-quality footage and audio without any extra effort!

This method is great if you are running on a tight budget or don’t have the technical know-how to set up something more complicated.

How Do I Set Up Audio Feed Properly?

We recommend using a mixer board to set up your audio. This will allow you to plug in multiple sources and mix them, creating the perfect sound for your service. It is important to ensure your levels are set correctly, and you can do this by simply talking into each microphone while the board is plugged in.

What About Video Streaming Software?

While streaming software is not required to stream your church service, it does help. Many free options are great for someone who wants a simple solution that doesn’t require much work. One example of this program is Open Broadcaster Software (OBS). This can be downloaded onto any PC or Mac laptop and is very easy to use.

Another popular option for streaming services is vMix. This is a bit more expensive – but it does have some great features. If you have the time to play around with different settings and buttons, this might be helpful for your church in particular!


Live streaming church services is a great way to reach more people and find new members, but it can be difficult for churches that don’t have the technical know-how or budget.

This blog post discussed how to stream your service effectively in three steps: what equipment you need, audio setup, and video software. I hope it has been helpful to you.
