Elation at Bayside’s new campus


Bayside Community Church is a rapidly growing Southwest Florida church. Crown Design Group (CDG) has been involved in several AVL projects at the church’s various campuses over the years, and was called upon once again to install the house and stage lighting rigs at Bayside’s new West Bradenton campus.

‘Bayside is a very active church,’ explained CDG’s Ben Graham, who was on the production staff at Bayside Community Church prior to co-founding Crown Design Group in 2012. ‘They are constantly adapting, always changing and consequently are very production driven.’

A flexible lighting system was therefore required to adapt to the church’s frequent production changes. Therefore, CDG installed a rig comprising more than 100 Elation Professional Colour Pendant fixtures of both the colour and white variety for down lighting. These can be found in the main sanctuary, and the youth and kids rooms.

Although the 1,000 or so parishioners in West Bradenton gather to watch a live feed of the sermon from one of Bayside’s other Bradenton sites, there are still several live elements to the worship, including musical performances, which are complemented by the lighting. When the motorised screens are lowered, the lighting adjusts accordingly to direct the congregation’s attention to the sermon.

Elation Fuze Wash Z350 LED wash moving heads have been used as colour wash on the main room stage, while SixPar 200 LED PAR lights facilitate a wide-ranging colour palette. Cuepix Blinder WW4s are used for low-end colour temperature effects and audience lighting, and an ACL 360 Bar is used onstage for added colour and dynamic effects when needed. The lighting system has been set up to complement the content on LED panels and other screens inside the church.
