Zoom is a video conferencing app that is free and easy to use.
To install ZOOM on your smart phone or tablet, go to the app store and download ZOOM. It looks like this.
To use ZOOM on your Computer or laptop, when you first try to use Zoom, you may be asked to download an applet. Click YES. If you see a message saying “Open URL:Zoom Launcher?”, click OPEN.
Once installed on your smart phone, tablet or computer, there are three different ways to access the meeting.
1) You can either just enter the meeting by clicking on the link in your text/email or on the relevant page on the church web-site.
2) Alternatively, just enter the Meeting ID number in the app on your smart phone or tablet. On a laptop, go to the web-site zoom.us and click “Join a meeting”. Then enter the meeting ID.
3) The third possibility is to use your phone and dial either of the following phone numbers .
0131 460 1196
0203 051 2874
0203 481 5237
0203 481 5240
When connected, just enter the meeting ID number on your phone and then you will be in the meeting. This only costs the same as a local call. You will be able to hear and talk to the others in the room, but not see them.
