Being Online

Using Zoom

The best way to use Zoom Meetings is by downloading the app. Once installed you will quickly be able to join in with our live events throughout the week.

To access the meeting room, you’ll need either the URL link or the meeting room and password. This will be sent to you via email when you register for an event.

To join the room simply click on “join” on the app main screen, or from a mobile, tap “join meeting”. From there, you’ll be asked for the meeting ID and password. Simply enter these and click on join with video and then click join with audio. That’s it! That’s all you need to know, but if you would like to see how it works, check out the short video. Hope to see you soon.
