ALTAR LIVE VS ZOOM

We Built Zoom For Church

At Altar Live, we have worked alongside churches who have used Zoom to conduct their church services, and who have used it to complement their livestream broadcast on Facebook or YouTube. These collaborations have identified the gaps and rough edges of Zoom for church, and helped Altar Live produce something purpose-built for faith communities.
