    The wait is over. FreeWorship 3 is finally here!

    Head over to to upgrade now.

    Those of you using the forums probably already know the benefits of FW3, but here’s the sales pitch anyway.

    Why should I upgrade?

    FW3 is more efficient, has more features and is easier to use than FreeWorship 2.

    Tell me more…

    – The new Background Selector makes it much easier to change backgrounds on the fly.

    – Videos just work now. No more faffing around with different video players. Just click play and FW3 dos the hard work for you.

    – SlideSets allow you to create simple presentations from right within FreeWorship, no PowerPoint required.

    – The Database Manager gives you a view of you entire song library for easy administration.

    – And much more…

    Can I open my old service lists in FreeWorship?


    Can I keep my old database?


    Can I install FW3 alongside FW2 before we completely switch over?


    Can I make it automatically brew tea and coffee for the tech team?

    Not yet. We’re working on it.
