The Visual in Worship – Session 2

The second session is going to introduce you to ‘worship presentation software’. There are many commercial and opensource alternative that work on windows, mac and linux.

We’re going to look at an opensource (free) one that I’ve been experimenting with since Autumn 2013:

It works with all three of those OS’s mentioned – Go ahead and download/install it if you like.

OpenLP has nice ‘remote control’ capabilities using either an iphone/ipad/ipod-touch:

(as often in the mac world the above is not free – $3.99!)

but the Android phone/tablet equivalent is, and I’ve used this sucessfully:

Note you’re going to need a wifi network to allow the remote control device to communicate with your laptop; not a facility in most of our churches – yet!
