The Altar app lets members watch and participate in a church event when they're away from their desktop. Download the app to watch a live event or participate in a meeting, watch a past event, chat with other members during a live event our after the event finishes, and view the calendar of upcoming events and meetings. Members will also receive mobile notifications through the Altar app.

Step 1: Download the Altar app

  • Find Altar Live in the App Store
  • Tap Get to download
  • Tap Open from the App Store.

Step 2: Give Altar access to your microphone and camera

Step 3: Sign in to your church community

Once you've installed the Altar app, you can sign in with your email and password credentials. If you have not yet created a member account, find the invitation in your email and set up your username and password on a desktop.

If your church community's administrator has already added you as a member, you will be logged in to your community. If you have not been added as a member of a community, search for your church under Find My Church and request permissions from the church administrator.

If you have not yet created a church community account, click on Create New Church Community to set up your church community.

Download the Altar presenter app to be able to present in an event, or the Altar producer app to produce a live event.
