How to Livestream Your Church Service

How to Livestream Your Church Service video, from TryTank and the Diocese of San Diego. See full written instructions here.

  • Forward Movement resources for home prayer and worship
  • Zoom lets you share live video, audio, and slides, etc., and broadcast live both to Zoom and to Facebook simultaneously, all for just $15 per month.
  • YouTube lets you schedule live broadcasts from your desktop/laptop computer using a basic web cam. Note that you must use your computer (rather than a cell phone or tablet) unless your channel has 1,000 or more subscribers.
  • Let us know you’re live streaming. We’ll add your event to this page. Create a Facebook event for your event and list the Diocese of NJ as a co-host. Your event will show up on the Diocese Facebook page for greater exposure.

U.S. Copyright Issues Related to Live Streaming Music

The Episcopal Church has posted an excellent resource to help churches live stream music legally, including one specifically geared toward the current crisis. They note that “congregations using any copyrighted musical content in a live streamed service must obtain either (a) specific written permission from the copyright holder(s) for each work used, or (b) a streaming license, which typically grants permission to use a list of specific copyrighted material. Because it can take a long time to obtain written permission from individual copyright holders, it is generally advisable to obtain a streaming license that covers the congregational music materials you want to use.”
