If you don't have the Zoom App already on yur computer/laptop/smartphone either download it or contact Garry for details/help. You have to let Garry know in advance that you want to be part of this. He will then send you an 11 digit meeting ID - a sort of "computer phone number" for that particular "meeting" (the Bible Study), which you enter into the Zoom panel on your computer shortly before the scheduled time of the meeting Garry will also send you a much shorter password to access the meeting. Once you have entered these, you have to wait until you are admitted to the "meeting". Its all far easier and more straightforward than it sounds.
