The Magdalene Chapel
Help us broadcast to the world!
The first newly dedicated Templar Church in more than 700 years is now ready for the finishing touches. The structure is all done – the walls, floor slab, windows, roof, and ceiling are all complete and perfect, the builder is working on the heavy door Almost all the interior fittings are bought and ready to be installed – the altar, chairs, the great cross, banners and so on are all finished and perfect.
The builder has sourced, cleaned and prepared the flagstones needed to finish off the floor, but before those go down we have to put in the cabling, trunking and electric sockets. To do its job properly, the St. Mary Magdalene Chapel must combine timeless solemnity with 21st century technology. To do this, we’re burying the cabling in channels in the concrete beneath the flagstones.
Chapel Broadcasting Equipment
So we are now at the stage where we need to buy, install and test all the electrical, recording and broadcasting equipment which will allow you and a growing audience to watch all the services and sermons. And, as with everything else the Templars do, we are determined to ensure that this is all to the very highest quality.
Here, then, is our final big shopping list for the completion of this extraordinary outpouring of Faith, which is to be the very heart of our noble Order for lifetimes to come:
- Dedicated cabling and trunking - £250
- Broadcast quality camera - £900
- Dedicated PC - £1200
- Monitors - £200
- Sound system and dampening - £250
- Microphone - £100
- Lighting - £500
We are so close to completing the entire Knights Templar Chapel project that I am both hugely excited and also aware of the Biblical warning that “The Time is Short”. We must get this finished – and FAST! My first sermon, for the service of consecration is ready. And, of course, we must have EVERYTHING installed, tried, tested and running smoothly in good time for the Knighting Ceremony in June.
