Zoom access instructions

If you've not used Zoom before don't worry, it's amazingly simple.
1. Follow the Zoom link next to the service you wish to join.
3: The Zoomlauncher.exe should open automatically but you may need to be patient (if it takes a long time follow the instructions on screen)
4. Click on the launcher to open it and then click 'run'.
5. This will take you straight to our 'webinar' (service).
6. You may need to enter your email and the password (published alongside the service, above)
7. Click the green button in the centre of your screen.
8. Have a little experiment with the two screens. You can toggle between them.
Once you've downloaded the launcher once it's even easier to join a 'meeting' again - so why not get set up in advance so you know you're all ready to go when you want to join us?


As you will appreciate without collections from Church Services our finances as a church have been hit severely.  At this difficult time of restrictions the easiest and safest way to support St James' is via standing order or one-off donation through your bank. Details about how to so this are on our Financial Giving Page
