With deep regret we have suspended all normal meetings for worship and
other in-person gatherings until further notice.
Croydon and Sutton are both holding Meetings for Worship via Zoom.
We try to make them as much like normal Sunday meeting as possible - arrive any time from 10:00,
worship 10:30 to 11:30, then notices and chat afterwards - but you will have to supply your own
How to connect to Croydon Virtual Meeting House
Note. You do not need to have a Zoom account to participate in a Zoom meeting.
(The key phrase is "join a meeting", not "sign in" or "sign up".)
- My machine is fully Zoom-capable, ie. it has a user-facing camera, microphone and speaker / headphone socket but Zoom is not installed.
- My machine is fully Zoom-capable and Zoom is already installed.
- My machine is not fully Zoom-capable (but it has a screen!).
- If you do not have Zoom installed follow the instructions at 1. above. Or if you have it installed go to the meeting as per 2. above.
- In Video Preview click on “join without video”.
- A box will then ask you to “choose one of the audio conference options”. Select Phone Call.
- Pick up your phone. If the numbers displayed on the screen do not begin +44, select the United Kingdom from the pull-down list! If you are on a landline replace +44 with zero. Dial a number.
- When connected and prompted key:
- Meeting Id: 786 763 002 #
- Participant Id.: <as displayed on the screen> #
- You should hear: “you are in the meeting now …”
- It is normal to mute your phone, so everyone does not hear each other’s background noises. Remember to unmute if you want to speak.
- My only means of communicating is a POTS phone (POTS = plain old telephone service - but not so old that it has a rotary dial!).

For those not familiar with using Zoom, we recommend this advice
on the Woodbrooke website.

or nominal religion.
We also provide suitable acitivities for children every fourth Sunday of the month.
