Using Zoom for Worship

Over the last three weeks (22nd, 29th March and 5th April) we have found Zoom to be an effective way of bringing us together in worship despite our physical separation. It is an App which can be used on Android/Apple or Windows devices and is relatively easy to install and use without requiring you to register . There are plenty of ‘How to’s online: This one is on how to Join a Zoom Meeting which will tell you how to join any of the acts of worship we are having this week.

Obviously, there are some things that are easier to do than others, so our worship is different from before, but with the same sense of the Spirit joining us together.

You can either join one of the acts of worship by clicking on the link above, or by installing/opening Zoom on your device, entering the correct Meeting ID (e.g. 224-497-494 for Easter Sunday) and then entering the password (which Zoom requires us to set) of 858873 which is the MATV Office Phone Number without the area code. The password is the same for all the Acts of Worship to make it easier to remember.

And please do offer to help with the worship in this most special of weeks by using the form you will find at to tell us how you would like to help. It would be helpful if you could use the form rather than via email as it will make the planning easier.

Looking forward to seeing you this week as we join together to remember all that Jesus has done for us.

With every blessing,

Joint worship on Sunday 29th March at 9.45 for 10.00


Dear all,

I hope this week has not be an anxious time for you amid all the changes to our way of life and that you have been able to feel something of the presence of God, nonetheless.

After last week’s trial of streaming worship using Zoom, we are giving another go! It was great to see so many of you last Sunday, and thank you for all the encouraging comments after the service. It was great that so many of you found it a real blessing to see each other’s faces through the power of technology overcoming our physical separation.

Use this link for our worship this week and every week from now on: Or from your Zoom App, click “Join a Meeting” and then enter the Meeting ID of 224 497 494.

If you have not got the technology for Zoom (i.e. no Laptop or Smart Phone) you can still join us. Phone 0330 088 5830, 0131 460 1196 or 0203 481 5237 and enter the Meeting Id via your keypad when prompted. Obviously you won’t see us, but you will be able us this to follow the worship. If you tried the app last week but didn’t hear anything, that’s because you need to use select “Call via Device Audio” via the headphones icon at the bottom left hand side of the app screen when you connect to the service. If you don’t not only won’t we hear you, but you won’t hear us either.

Our worship begins at 10:00am although we will start gathering from 9:45 onwards. This week our worship will be led by Andrea and we will be joined by Ven. Ian Bentley, Archdeacon of Lynn, who will give our talk on the Bible Reading: John 11:1-45. There are some activity sheets to go with this bible reading are available at here for home printing. If you like craft try looking here: for some fun crafts to make.

On Friday or Saturday I will email out a service booklet for those of you who don’t like following words on a screen.

I would also be grateful if you can forward this email to friends, neighbours and members of your congregation. I am painfully aware that our distribution list does not yet have everyone’s emails on it. So please help by passing this on. The act of worship, like all our ‘normal’ worship is open to all and we don’t want anyone to miss out because we haven’t got their email on our system and of course that means that others in our communities or wider who want to join are very welcome.

Finally, can I ask you for forbearance, not least when things are not perfect or quite ‘as you would like it’. Please remember that an item of the service that you are finding a barrier to worship is almost certainly the one thing that is blessing someone else. If you don’t know the song, just listen to others worshipping or take that as an opportunity to have a biscuit (having switched your mike off of course so we don’t hear you crunching). We are a diverse benefice. Our worship from now on will reflect that.

Looking forward to seeing you again on Sunday.

With every blessing,
