Instructions for Online Worship via Zoom

Homewood Friends Meeting is holding Sunday meeting for worship in person and online.  Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. We use Zoom; the virtual room opens around 10:15. To join the meeting for worship, please use the URL that is listed in the current Announcements.

If you already have the Zoom app on your device, you can simply enter the meeting at that point. If you don’t yet have the app, Zoom should offer you an installation link. After you tap or click that and approve the installation, the app should install itself, and you can then join the meeting.

For the full experience, your device should have a camera as well as a microphone and speakers or headphones. Note that all participants’ microphones will automatically be muted upon entry: to offer vocal ministry during worship, you will need to activate your microphone before you begin speaking. Please mute the microphone again after you finish speaking. Controls are located at the bottom of the Zoom window: the microphone icon is at the lower left corner and will have a red line through it when the microphone is muted.

The host will open the virtual meeting room by 10:15 or earlier.

For more information about using Zoom, please see:  That page also allows you to “practice” ahead of time by joining a test meeting — a way of getting the app installed and seeing what Zoom looks like ahead of the actual meeting for worship.

Before and during the meeting for worship, you can contact the host for technical support at
