Streaming Services for Churches
Never has there been a greater need to keep people safe, both physically and spiritually. Covid 19 has left no country, industry or individual unaffected.
Just when the church needed to be able to reach those in need, attending church services was forbidden and many clergy were left wondering how they could continue gods work.
In this hour of need technology provided some answers and churches took to broadcasting services using a variety of solutions and platforms.
Few if any of these platforms are ideal for church services and so we created Seccom Church Services.

There are typically 3 cost elements to the service:
- Setup and installation – some of that goes to us to get you set up, some of that is for any equipment you need which we supply at cost – or you can supply as long as it meets our minimum requirements.
- Monthly fee – this covers your subscription to the streaming platform and pays for hosting costs and our support and maintenance.
- Your costs – you will need a CCLI Streaming License- around you will also need to have a PRS LOML license which we buy and bill you for, electrical work, broadband costs – you would need these for any service you wished to use.
