Bible & Hands jpg  MET Virtual Prayer Meeting

 

Sundays 7:00pm -8:00pm 

 

 While Covid-19 is restricting us from being able to physically meet together, MET are hosting a virtual prayer meeting each Sunday using Zoom, an online meeting facility.

Zoom works on smartphones, tablets, laptops and PC's and can also be accessed by just using an ordinary phone. Details about getting set up with Zoom are listed below, scroll down to the instructions for your device.   

To join in with the prayer meeting you will need to use the following ID 714 714 2714. These numbers have been chosen because they link to the devotions that we started the first virtual prayer meeting with, 2 Chronicles 7:14. Mathematicians may find it easy to remember as 2 x 7 = 14. Isaiah 7:14 is also an important verse for these challenging times, he prophesied the birth of ‘Immanuel’, meaning ‘God with us’. 

 

Please join with us in seeking God's help for our nation and world
at this troubled time.

ZOOM Instructions

 Zoom is relatively simple to use and you can use any device to join us for the Zoom meetings (smart phone/tablet/desktop/laptop). Please scroll down to find the instructions for the device you would like to use. Zoom works best with a camera and microphone, so if you don’t have those on your computer, a smart phone or tablet may be best. 
Please do try to get set up to use Zoom well in advance of our meetings.  When you try outside of one of our meetings, you will only be able to get as far as the ‘on hold’ stage.
