We make full use of our computer projector, in the morning services, which is based on Windows XP and uses ZionWorx as its front end. This enables us to project the song and hymn words, from our large database, and also to follow the readings from the 'Good News' bible only. The use of PowerPoint presentations for sermon, or other sections of the service, is run from the ZionWorx program directly. This enables us to have more control of the service, being able to alter the sequence of event as we go.

We hope this information is useful and we look forward to your visit.
