Zoom Meetings

Tell me simply – how do I join?

Simple answer – click here: https://zoom.us/j/2414013533 and follow the instructions.

What is a Zoom meeting?

Zoom is an online “video conferencing” system.  It allows lots of people to join a “virtual” meeting together using their tablets (e.g. iPads), smartphones or computers.  Everyone can hear each other and see each other, using the cameras on their devices.  Perfect for times of self-isolation!

Can I test in advance?

Yes.  On Thursday 25th March, 7:30pm-8:00pm, we’ll open the meeting for you to test.  We’ll then run our first Prayer Meeting starting at 8:00pm.

Can you explain this Zoom thing in more detail?

What do you need to join a Zoom internet meeting?  It’s simplest if you have a tablet (e.g. iPad) or “smartphone” mobile phone.  Tablets and smartphones have a built-in microphone, speaker and camera – and these are the things you need to join a Zoom meeting.

If you’d prefer, you can use your computer.  You’ll need a computer with speakers, a microphone, and a webcam.  Many webcams have built-in microphones.  In our experience, setting up Zoom on a computer is a little more complex than on a tablet or smartphone.

To join the Zoom meeting, browse to this website link:  https://zoom.us/j/2414013533

Zoom needs you to download the Zoom app onto your tablet, smartphone or computer.

If you’ve not used Zoom before, then the link above should prompt you to download and install the application.

Once you’ve installed the application, then click again on the link (https://zoom.us/j/2414013533), and it should take you to the meeting.

When you first join the meeting in your Zoom app, it will ask you if you’d like to “Join Using Internet Audio”.  Choose that option; that will allow you to hear what’s being said, and be heard yourself too.

Sorry! I need you to take me through this step-by-step!

No problem.  It varies depending on what sort of tablet, phone or computer you’re using.
