Film Night now This Coming Saturday Night!

Our upcoming film night has been re-scheduled for this coming Saturday night as I’ll be out at our retreat centre the following week.

I’m going to share screens with you so all you’ll need to do is log in using the Zoom link to watch it with us. I would suggest using the computer with best picture / sound or even better smart TV in order to enhance the quality of the experience. If you can use a cable to go from your computer to TV that will work well. 

I trialled sharing my screen with a friend this morning and he told me the sound and picture quality was pretty good …..
