What is a podcast?
Older members of the congregation may remember listening to adventure series on the radio: Dick Barton Special Agent, The Man in Black, Listen with Mother, and many others. These were serials that you tuned into each week to hear the thrilling ‘further adventures of …’. Well, podcasts are a bit like that. They are ‘shows’ which have weekly episodes that you can listen to and follow. You can listen to individual episodes online or you can choose to ‘subscribe’ to a podcast, where you can access the whole series and automatically get notice of new episodes.
What is on the Church Podcast?
At the moment, you will be able to hear all the sermons/devotions and Bible readings since the Coronavirus lockdown. So if you’ve missed a Sunday, you can go and listen to the service on our podcast. The podcast will act as an accessible archive for our services. This will be useful, when the Minister is leading us through a series of lessons on particular passages of the Bible.
How do I access the Church podcast?
If you have used podcasts before:
Go to the Church website: http://www.renfrewtrinity.org. From here, select the Media and Resources tab on the top menu, you will see a list of resources. Click on podcasts, and that will take you to our hosting site. You can see our episodes there and select one or two of them. You will also be given an option to subscribe to the Church podcast. Subscribing costs nothing and it just means that in future you click on your podcast icon and all episodes are easily available to you. And new episodes will go straight to your podcast app, so you don’t need to even visit the church website to get them.
