Kingdom Come – St Cuthbert’s Church Darlington
Kingdom Come 2018
On Friday 11th May we had the pleasure of providing technical services to the first Darlington Kingdom Come event held at St Cuthbert’s Church, Darlington. The evening featured the Tom Read band, who performed a variety of worship music, as well as talks during the Kingdom Come 2018 service.
Our role for the event was to transform St Cuthbert’s Church into a performance space through the use of sound lighting and vision. Firstly, the sound system was designed to suit the venue, due to the acoustics properties of the church, and for this we used D&B Audiotechnik C-Series of loudspeakers, alongside the in built processing power of the Behringer X-32 Digital mixing console, which we used for the FOH mix. In addition to this, due to the limited space on stage we provided wireless IEMs (In ear monitors) for the band members, as well as radio microphones for the Kingdom Come organisers for talks and prayers. We also provided all backline for the band, resulting in an efficient sound check as all lines were tested prior to band arrival resulting in a smoother set up.
As well as this, a requirement from the kingdom Come organisers was to display lyrics of each song for the audience to clearly see during the service. For this we provided two 55 inch displays on conference stands in addition to a projector and screen which was flown for the event. The use of our BlackMagic atem vision mixer, as well as live cameras meant we could display various sources with smooth transitions, when the lyrics didn’t need to be displayed, allowing audience members to clearly see the talkers if they were further back in the audience. Finally through the careful use of lighting we transformed St Cuthbert’s Church, Darlington, through the use of moving lights, coloured led effects and haze, to bring the beams clearly into the rest of the church. This was all controlled through our High End Systems Hoglet 4, which allowed us to create a truly stunning look.
Organisers from Kingdom Come commented ‘we were truly blown away with the sound quality, visual clarity and stunning lighting that CDB Production Solutions have provided, as well as the professionalism and breadth of knowledge of all crew’
We look forward to working with Kingdom Come Darlington and St Cuthbert’s Church again in the future for their events.
