In recent years many churches have switched from providing books and sheets for worship, teaching and information to projecting it all up onto screens and monitors. But is this all to our advantage?

These notes list ten ‘screen snags’ including the limited field of view on one screen, faulty technology and having nothing to take away. 

These are followed by ten ‘print problems’ including giving everyone a mini-library, lack of versatility and having your hands full rather than hands-free.

Once you recognise the weaknesses of each system, you can assess how to use the strengths of both.

Ensure all those in your church or mission who are responsible for worship, teaching and communication receive a weblink or a printed copy.
