Streaming Information

The livestream will be visable at the top of the page.
If you don’t hear audio, check the speaker icon in the lower left corner of the video to make sure the volume is up. (Note: the icon will not be present until we go live, which is normally about 5 minutes before service begins). Also make sure your computer’s volume is turned up.
If the video is not streaming by start time, you may need to hit the play button, as some browser settings prevent the stream from automatically starting.
One last option that may help is to refresh the page a few minutes before the service begins. Once we’re live, re-loading the webpage can help the ‘autoplay’ bypass the browser settings.
