Templates

We’ve put in place updated PowerPoint templates and a Service Planner for use at St Andrew’s; especially for services like the 10:45 Sunday service using EasyWorship. However they can be used more widely for services at both churches.

The Service Planner (.docx) can be downloaded by clicking here.

These templates have been put in place to ensure compatibility with the way services are presented at St Andrew’s, including EasyWorship and the church laptop.  Please ensure that you always start your preparation with a ‘clean’ template. Once you have finished preparing the PowerPoint, please delete the first slide (which contains a set of instructions). A few key points to note:

  1. When adding or pasting in slides always choose the “Use Destination Theme (H)” option; never the “Keep Source Formatting (K)” option as this changes the underlying template and can cause problems.
  2. The absolute minimum text size is 24 point Arial (with Bold and Shadow enabled if possible) in a good contrast for text to be visible from back of church. Typically we use 32 or 34 point Arial with Bold and Shadow on a strongly contrasting background (white text on blue background) for normal text in church. If you use an smaller font (e.g. Calibri) you will need to use an even larger point size.
  3. The projection system in church in daylight means that the contrast will not be as good as viewed on your computer screen. Therefore please ensure that you use contrasts (e.g. between text and backgrounds) that will work well in the church.
  4. We use a 1024 x 768 display and any full screen images should be as close to this as possible for clarity. Try to avoid fuzzy boundaries on images and enlarge them to edge of the screen if possible.
  5. Slides such as the welcome, readings and prayers slides are there purely as examples and, like the first instructions slide in each template, should be deleted if not required in the final PowerPoint.

If you need some further instructions, guidance or help, please talk to Derek Barnes or Kirsty Oldfield who will do their best to help you.
