Each week we video the worship service for live streaming on the internet. We also take photos from time to time for Facebook, the website and other forms of media. If for any reason, you would not like either yourself or your child(ren) to be videoed or photographed, please speak to someone at Guest Central, Brigitte Bagg, Tracey Ryan or any other staff member. Choosing to sit behind the cameras will also minimize your chance of being filmed.
