Good, Free Presentation Software for Church!

2019-07-19

Pros

I recommend this software for small churches looking to transition over to the digital world from overhead projectors and especially if they do not have a team of volunteers but just one person overseeing it.

Cons

I can't say that I would recommend this for a volunteer based team.

OpenLP is a fantastic free presentation software for churches

2018-05-10

A free presentation software that was stable and kept pace with many of its much more expensive competitors.

Pros

This free software offers most of the basic functionality you find in a paid presentation software, only they have done it for free! Import songs from CCLI SongSelect, keep a library, add in videos and Powerpoints, and you have everything you need.

Cons

The SongSelect import was more cumbersome than with other software, but it still worked.

Brilliantly simple, effective tool for church meetings

2019-02-16

Pros

OpenLP has a simple, effective interface for projecting song lyrics, scripture and images during a meeting.

Cons

Unfortunately it has limitations with regards to video integration, requiring separate software to do so which makes the experience less than seamless.

Best lyrics projection software

2019-06-26

I tried or saw many other software, but for last 6 years OpenLP solve every worship meetings or performances (where our technical team assisted) very well. The software is very handy in everything the user wants to do when paper songbooks are not an option. The complex funtions need some time to learn, but even the beginner can do basic things really fast. Great GUI.

Pros

Working well on all platforms and projectors (some other comparable multiplatform softwares for lyrics projection are far more buggy with the multiple screen handling on Linux and MacOS) The remote control from any device over http - the most clever function, also the people who newer saw OpenLP can switch between slides or search for songs, very good GUI.

Cons

In the default configuration too many hotkeys are set and some alphabet keys conflict with song fast scrolling to certain letter. But 1 minute of erasing the hotkeys fix this for the future.

It's a FREE WORSHIP SOFTWARE

2019-09-12

This software is an essential tool for our fellowship. If your church cannot (or does not want to spend money) afford ProPresenter or EasyWorship, this is the software for you!

Pros

What's to go wrong with this free software? It's completely FREE! We are able to do most features of Easyworship and Propresenter using this software. Essential tool of our church youth group.

Cons

There are a few missing feature. First of all, the multilingual bible support is not that effective.

Program IS NOT for nontechnical persons.

2020-06-14

Pros

It works for a small fellowship that does not have funds for a better updated modern program. Works well with CCLI - Song Select. I was using LibreOffice PowerPoint - this is a great upgrade with ease of use when preparing for a service.

Cons

There is NO tech support, The interface is not up to modern standards ease of use.

If you want something to get up and going fast then this is it. Handles very basic functions well.

2018-04-29

Easy setup. Fast editing to get screens displayed.

Pros

It is easy to use for almost anybody with basic computer skills.

Cons

The content sometimes laggs behind when you put it on the screen. Also the songs dont keep up with my musicians. I have to constantly move the needle. Needs more backgrounds so you dont have to do much creating.

OpenLP is great!

2019-02-03

It would be easier if I could use a remote but we can always find someone to click on each item as needed.

Pros

Once you learn it, it is easy to use.

Cons

When someone new uses it they sometimes save things in a different way and then you have to hunt for what you are looking for. Sometimes it goes through and makes 4 copies of each media title and then you have to delete all of the extras.

Great Open Source Church Presentation Software

2019-03-16

Our Church was starting a new service and we needed to get something that was cheap, free and easy to learn.

Pros

This software is free, straightforward and easy to learn

Cons

It does not have motion backgrounds. There a a few glitches that think the developers have to work on but for the most part i think it works well. Most of these issues are already on forums being discussed so i'm pretty sure they will be addressed soon

Easy to Use Presentation Software

2019-08-25

Overall, our experience with the software has been positive. The ease of use during the service has been of immense help.

Pros

I like that it is easy for a user to use during the service.

Cons

I dislike the lack of some features such as being able to run video in the software. We have to use separate software for that. Our other issue is the lack of information on how to do things with the software. The lack of tutorials on it probably keeps many churches away from using it.
