This is the most reliable way to join if you're going to be in your car. (Note that this is a long-distance call from Castlegar.)

Join by Videoconference

If you have enough data on your mobile device, or if you successfully connect to the Shaw Open or United Church Guest networks, you could join the Zoom video conference from the parking lot.

These days of COVID-19 have forced us to adapt in several ways, and we are now adapting by holding a series of services in our parking lot. Imagine the glory days of the drive-in cinema (never mind that the sound was never great, and the view from the backseat was always awful...and if you opened the window to defog

the windshield, the mosquitos came flooding in...).

No doubt we will have some hiccups. But when we experimented with this on Easter morning at sunrise, it went surprisingly smoothly.

Now that the weather has changed, you'll have the option of bringing a lawn chair and sitting 2m away from the next household, or you can stay in your car with its built-in weatherproofing where singing is still safe.

We ask that all maintain 2m (6ft) of separation from the next household, which, sadly, means no hugging. Even if someone has consented to a hug in the past, that may have changed. And we don't want to give the false impression of breaking the recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer and the Pacific Mountain Regional Council.

When you arrive, please prepare to be directed to where you can set up your lawn chair or park your car.

You will receive a small piece of paper with instructions for joining the teleconference. But it's better, of course, if you don't need to use it (ie. avoid touching common objects).
