Old school, new life

Old school, new life

Published: WORSHIP

AUSTRALIA: Life Church in Brisbane recently acquired an old school premises to serve as its new home and to house its own Christian school. The old school hall has been converted into the church’s new auditorium and multifunctional space, hosting weekly services and a variety of events.

Forefront Productions, an A/V systems integrator and rental house that specialises in church projects, assisted with converting the old school hall, designing and installing the audio, lighting and video systems while also giving advice on stage construction, venue layout and acoustic treatment. The project specification called for a sound system with the flexibility to reinforce church services, as well as school assemblies and performances.

Several audio options were explored with a Nexo Geo S12 line array solution ultimately chosen, reportedly due to the balance it offered between performance and budget. ‘We’re always impressed with the accuracy and full, rich near field sound of the Geo S12 system,’ offers Matt Wever, senior engineer at Forefront Productions.

The main PA setup inside the auditorium comprises three Geo S1210 and an S1230 per side. ID24 elements as front-fills and four LS18 subs were deployed in a steered array configuration. These were chosen for their aesthetics, as subwoofers and front-fills needed to be positioned within the pre-existing stage structure, while remaining hidden from view.

Following the installation, Life Church has seen its new sound system used for a major conference and performances by UK guest artists Martin Smith and Army of Bones. Senior Pastor Lee Blight is impressed. ‘We would not do this any other way, having Forefront oversee all aspects of our A/V project meant that we caught many of the potential integrations issues early,’ he says.
