USA: Woodstock City Church is a non-denominational Christian church located in the Georgia-based town with which it shares its name. It is part of the North Point Ministries network, which comprises a total of six churches in the Atlanta metropolitan area, and recently relocated to a new campus due to the increasing size of its congregation. The church operates contemporary services that include music and games, and to further enhance this, commissioned the installation of new lighting fixtures at its new facility.

‘At Woodstock City Church, one of the ways we accomplish our mission is by creating engaging services,’ explains the church’s lighting director, Rob Shawver. ‘We provide weekly worship services that are commonly full-on, concert-style productions. For example, we did Firework by Katy Perry on the fourth of July. Other times, we will host smaller, more intimate services, and we use the lights to supplement the production. Our goal is to enhance the experience rather than introduce distracting elements.’

To deliver the concert style of lighting to the church’s 4,000 strong congregation, Mr Shawver and his team chose to invest in 34 Martin Professional fixtures for the main sanctuary. The project was supported by worship technology consultancy E2i Design. ‘This was the first time we’ve designed a lighting rig from the ground up, and we were excited to work with the Harman team to build a state-of-the-art rig for our church,’ enthuses Mr Shawver.

The rig incorporates 21 Mac Viper AirFX, a pair of Atomic 3000 DMX strobes and 11 Rush MH 3 Beams. The Mac Viper AirFX fixtures were reportedly chosen for their ability to produce hard-edge, mid-air effects and a wash field during productions.

‘The Mac Viper AirFX fixtures have been great, and they give us so many creative options,’ Mr Shawver notes. ‘The colour mixing is smooth, and the colours have excellent punch. We absolutely love that they can mimic a beam as well as a super-wide zoom. We use mid-air effects to create really dynamic lighting and evoke the emotion that complements the music. They’ve been amazing.’

With the lighting rig up and running and dazzling the congregation at Woodstock City Church each week, feedback has reportedly been positive. ‘We’ve received great feedback on our new Martin lighting rig, and people are always telling us how beautiful the lights are,’ concludes the church’s lighting director. ‘I've always liked Martin fixtures, and their customer service has been great – they make us feel like we’re part of their team.’
