How to join an online/phone meeting

  • Online/phone meetings for worship will at the times listed above, followed by time for conversation.
  • Zoom login details and passcode do not routinely change. We send a reminder before each Meeting or event to Friends on the Bath Quaker email list.
  • Visitors are welcome! Please contact us to introduce yourself and ask for the online/phone meeting password.
It helps if you:
  • join the online/phone meeting 5-10 minutes before worship starts so that you have time to say ‘hello’ and familiarise yourself with Zoom
  • mute your microphone when you’re not speaking, to avoid background noise
  • don’t use the Zoom chat window during worship

If you find it hard to sit at a screen for the full length of Meeting, please join at the start and leave when you have to, perhaps by switching off your camera and ensuring your microphone is muted. You can then return for notices etc.
