Powerpoint


W
e have PowerPoint and a fixed data projector in the worship area. If you wish to make use of PowerPoint you can prepare your slides in advance and either email them or bring them with you on a USB stick.

If you are going to prepare slides then the following guidelines may help, based on our experiences with our set-up.

  • Font sizes work best at between 38 and 44 points, bold type works best.
  • Backgrounds are best in solid colours, gradients and patterms do not work well.
  • The best contrast is either white or yellow on dark blue or black. Black on white also works well.
  • Photographs do not show particularly well, especially busy photos with lots of detail.
  • Simple photos where the subject is clear will be OK.
  • Sometimes background photos with text can work well, provided the background colour is fairly solid and a good contrast with where the text is.
Our current version of PowerPoint is Office 2007, but this can take older versions of PowerPoint.

Please Note :

We use PowerPoint in the morning services but often not in the evening services, please check with the steward who contacts you to see if it is available for the evening.

Songs & Hymns


W
e use Hymns & Psalms and Singing the Faith supplemented by our own worship book and other songs.
