All of our services from St Osmund's are now available in real time from anywhere in the world. All that is needed is a broadband connection to the internet. All three Sunday Masses will also be recorded and will be available on the RECORDINGS tab so that they can be viewed at any time of day or night during the subsequent week.
Following a request from our Polish community, we will also be recording the monthly Polish Mass that takes place at St Osmund's at 4 pm on the second Sunday of the month.We were happy to recieve their request and glad that they also plan to make good use of this service.
When you click into 'Church TV' (either from the top blue menu bar, or the large button lower down beside the pictures of our priests) you can choose either to view exactly as it appears or change to full screen mode. How you view is down to personal choice and may depend on the device (size of screen) you are using. The service can be viewed on PCs, Macs, IPads, Smartphones and other tablets.
There are three tabs showing on our Church TV: PLAYER, SCHEDULES, RECORDINGS
You may need to press the play button (in the centre of the screen) when you first access Church TV.
This is the live streaming tab. This is the view of the church at the very moment of time that you are viewing. Please be aware that when there is no service taking place, there will be no sound as the amplifier in the church will not be switched on. When there is a service taking place, there will be sound.

Here you will find all the services services that have been recorded. Please note that a service that has just been recorded will not immediately show up here. Please be patient they will appear, it just takes a little processing time.
Select the Mass you want and click the play arrow in the middle of the screen. The controls over the speaker and full screen are the same as on the PLAYER (‘Live’) tab (see above). As above please use the full screen or not to suit your preference and device you are using.
After watching a recording, you may need to refresh your browser to return to the PLAYER (‘Live’) tab or you can simply press HOME on the menu and then select Church TV again.
Beneath the Church Services TV panel you will find recordings from Holy Redeemer, St Gregory's and other services recorded on VIMEO. This is a video recording service we have signed up to which for now gives us a better quality recording playback.
