Option 3 – Share pre-recorded clips

This option would involve the organisers either conducting a series of separate interviews, or sending all the candidates the same questions and ask them to video-record their responses and then the church can post them online. Perhaps a church leader may also like to add a comment reflecting on faith, the democratic context and the current context. Give each participant a time limit for their answer or comment, with an understanding that this will be strictly adhered to by the editor.

This may be a very useful option if there are a large number of candidates, or in areas with unreliable internet connection that might make hosting an online meeting difficult.
