King’s Church teams up with Captivate AV to enhance worship experience


Boasting several key locations across Australia’s Gold Coast, King’s Church encompasses a growing community of connected worshippers that regularly assemble for a variety of services and events. With a vast congregation, including multiple associated school campuses, the church is well-versed in employing high-tech AV solutions to amplify its message.

Endeavouring to offer its followers a technologically progressive experience, both in-person and online, King’s Church produces its own podcast and web-stream services, while delivering live worship sessions through song and the spoken word. Recognising seamless audio production as a core component in delivering the impact it wanted, the church’s team enlisted Captivate AV to help optimise its AV capabilities. Chris Lang, Captivate AV’s MD, spearheaded the leap to KLANG IEM technology and DiGiCo S-Series consoles in a move that has been well-received by King’s Church’s worship leaders, students and global worship director, Ashleigh Rogers.

“Our church incorporates schools, meaning we have very mixed, multipurpose use spaces. From services to musicals, the sound system is used a lot – almost every day of the week for different things,” said Rogers. “Now, thanks to our DiGiCo and KLANG setup, we experience significantly better time efficiency and the in-ears have given musicians and singers the confidence to hear exactly what they need – they can simply adjust everything themselves. Having KLANG has massively improved our audio experience and worship quality.”

“We currently have three campuses across the Gold Coast region with DiGiCo S-Series consoles,” added Lang. “Before KLANG, one campus was using foldback wedges for frontline and an older-style personal monitoring system for backline. The other campuses were doing IEM mixes straight from the console. Once DMI-KLANG was released, we began installing them across the campuses along with additional wireless stereo IEM kits.”

King’s Church worship leader and drummer describes the way he employs the app and 3D IEM features: “Using KLANG really helps to position everything that you're hearing, to give you that very authentic, open ambient noise from the drums. Depending on what drum I’m mixing, I will generally position each part in the app similarly to an overhead position. This creates a very clear, realistic sound for those drums in my in-ears. Having the 3D option creates a realistic environment when playing – and creates this feeling of being in among the rest of the instruments and the other band members, while still maintaining the clarity of my own instrument in the mix.”

Giving rise to a renewed sense of enthusiasm among the performers bringing worship to life, the KLANG IEMs, coupled with DiGiCo’s S-Series, have made a positive impact on the King’s Church community. “We now wouldn’t live without it and could never go back,” concluded Rogers. “It’s been amazing.”
