Online Prayer and worship meetings

During the Covid-19 emergency we will run online meetings for prayer and/or worship using the conferencing application Zoom.

We shall be making use of the "Waiting Room" facility provided by Zoom which gives an extra level of security to our meeting whist allowing us to continue making the connection details public.
To help ease administration of this, if at all possible, please join the service (in the usual way) by 5 minutes before the start time. (Please be reassured though that later arrivals will still be able to join.)

You need to install the helper application on your desktop computer. The first time you use the link under 'Next meeting' you will be prompted to install it by saving the Zoom Launcher program and then running the install program.

Thereafter you use your regular web browser to access the conference. Follow the prompts on screen to join. Zoom may tell you 'This link needs to be opened with an application' with 'Zoom' highlighted. Click 'Open Link'. Be patient while Zoom loads.

On your mobile device or tablet you will need to install the Zoom app from Google Playstore or Apple App Store.

Tap the title of the file and accept the installation. Allow all the permissions that it requests.
