Activities Happening Online

Zoom is a free video conferencing service that lets you talk with friends and family from all over the world.

As well as being able to keep in touch with loved ones, there are all kinds of group meetings and events taking place over Zoom. During the Covid-19 restrictions, video services such as Zoom have been used to allow virtual gatherings and 121s where physical distancing would otherwise mean these would be cancelled.
