Join the people of Seale, The Sands, Puttenham and Wanborough for our online “Matins/Morning Prayer” church service, at 10.30am Sunday 24th May 2020.
Our sincere apologies for the multiple technical problems last week. This was caused by Zoom themselves rather than anything we or you did. Many church churches were affected in the same way last Sunday (see Independent Newspaper article).
There are a few things you could help us with.
- Logon in good time for the start of the service (we open the call from 10am)
- Check that you are using the latest version of Zoom (from 30th May Zoom will require you to update to the latest version). See https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362233-Upgrade-update-to-the-latest-version
- Mute yourself when you are not talking. (Note that Zoom security changes mean that the host now can’t unmute you (for example at the end of the service) and you need to unmute yourself if you want to be heard.
We are going to hold a practice Zoom call if anyone wants to check their connection. This will be today (Saturday 23rd May 2020) between 5p and 6pm – feel free to test your connection anytime between those times.
