“All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God’s grace in all its truth.”
— Colossians 1:6
The Media Ministry at Park Street Church is dedicated to augmenting the hearing of the Gospel—whether through work behind the scenes or in front of a camera, for people sitting in the pews or at their computers in other countries—using a variety of media tools.
Members participate in the worship services by controlling sound, recording services for radio broadcast and showing video. The Media Ministry is also indispensable to the Park Street website: it uploads mp3s, creates podcasts, coordinates audio and video streaming and produces creative videos to share with the congregation and the world.
Park Street’s morning worship service is broadcast each Sunday in the Boston area on WEZE, Family Radio 590 AM:
11am: Live broadcast of our second morning worship service
This is believed to be the longest-running sermon radio broadcast in the country! It began in 1923.
Can't make it to church? Hear or see any of the first three Sunday services in real time via the sermon audio page.
In addition to recording services for radio broadcast, radio room employees and volunteers use technology and observation to ensure that sound runs smoothly throughout each service.
Recordings of each sermon are available on CD after all four services; visit the Media Ministry table downstairs in the Welcome Center. CDs are $4/each if picked up at church or $6/each for mail orders. Yearly mailed subscriptions are also available for $169/year. Subscriptions begin on the date ordered (they are not retroactive). Contact Linda Yee for details.
Sermon mp3s from both the morning and evening services are available for free download from the sermon audio page.
Podcasting will download the weekly sermon mp3s to your computer automatically! To participate, subscribe to the Park Street Church podcast. It's free! Click here to visit the podcast page.
The digital video ministry was made possible through a generous grant from the Kendrick Foundation. Using tools such as a digital video camera and professional editing software, volunteers seek to proclaim the Gospel in a powerful, multi-sensory format. They record stories of God at work among us and share these stories during services and on the website.
The video ministry is always open to new volunteers. All sorts of skills can be put to use. We recruit sound and light technicians, script writers, reporters, digital film editors, directors, designers, creatives and more.
