Frequently Asked Questions

Livekingdomhall.com is a website developed by brothers and sisters who have donated both their time and resources.   It is designed for individual congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses to broadcast high definition sound to those who are in need.

You will need to contact the responsible brother in your own congregation for the password to listen to your meeting.

To stream your congregation meetings you can use almost any laptop or pc connected to your sound system.  You will also need an internet connection at your kingdom hall.
