Toby Raistrick

Toby works for the church as the primary “Sound Desk” operator, website manager, and has a passion for all things technical.
He started over 10 years ago in the Summer of 2009 at Messy Church, helping to operate the Church laptop and PowerPoint slides in the songs. And since then has taken up further roles and responsibilities over the years around the “sound desk”, from the Holiday Clubs, Youth Clubs, Saturday Services, and now prepares most of our services and worship services for the screen, as well as co-ordinations the microphones and audio requirements for it all!

His favourite part of the role is the continuous evolution and development of the “sound desk”, including the recent re-ordering and re-location of equipment onto the new mezzanine, but also new worship methods including video backgrounds and effects. As well as new technical elements to the Church such as additional worship screens, microphones, remote control, and live music.

His favourite part of the services and the church is the worship together in contemporary songs. While sometimes found guilty of playing the music a little too loud, most people appreciate the visuals, experience, and sound system that has been setup in our Church.
