Instructions for joining "Zoom" service on Sunday 26 July 2020

Online Sunday Reflection 26 July 2020

This Sunday will be a little different to our usual uploaded reflection on YouTube. This Sunday 26 July I will be hosting live online worship on Zoom at 10:30am. The first part will consist of a short service with prayer, reading and a reflection. The second part will be an opportunity for those who want to, to catch up with a chat on Zoom.

This service will be recorded (not the social part) and be made available on YouTube later the same day for those who want to access the service, but do not want to participate in the live online meeting.

How to access this:

Before Sunday contact Eddie by email: EEnslin@churchofscotland.org.uk to get the "Passcode"

There are two main ways to access Zoom. The first is using an internet-connected Smartphone or Tablet. For this option you might need to install the Zoom app before the meeting and set up a free account using your email address and a password of your choice. The app can be found here by clicking on the link using your tablet or smartphone:

Android Phones (Samsung / Huawei / LG etc.) : https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/_ez0CANLltNlQVXcGdrrH?domain=play.google.com

Apple Phones: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/zoom-cloud-meetings/id546505307

The second option is using your Computer’s internet browser (Internet Explorer / Chrome / Safari). You will not necessarily need to set up an account to use this option, but you can if you wish.

I hope this will add positively to our experience of online worship during these challenging times, and also allow us to interact with each other. So on Sunday morning put on the kettle and make yourself some coffee or tea and join us at 10:30 for something different. If not, feel free to access the recording of this later on Sunday via our YouTube video.

Best Wishes

Eddie
