Instructions on how to join our online 'Zoom' Church Service
Sunday Mornings @10.30am
Through the covid-19 pandemic we will be conducting our Sunday services electronically via the Zoom platform. This system is very simple to use and can be accessed online or by phone. As usual, our Sunday services will begin at 10:30am but you will be able to join from 10:00am Please Note - You will need to be logged on prior to 10:30 as access closes at the start of the service time.
To join our services online, simply follow this link:
The link is the same for all of our meetings.
Zoom should open in your browser, but if not try downloading/installing the app and then try the link again.
The system runs through your computer’s audio system so headsets are not required.
As general advice for those joining online; try to avoid anything in the background which might use up your bandwidth e.g. if someone else in the house is using a streaming service you might find your connection to Zoom a little slow.
Joining by Phone
If you prefer to join us by phone you can do so by phoning: 0330 088 5830
The call will be answered automatically, and you will be asked to enter the 'meeting ID'
The meeting ID is: 9926382728 followed by the “#” key.
As with the link, use this same ID for all meetings.
Please keep in mind that phone-ins will appear on your phone bill and be charged in the usual way for landline calls. This means that if you have a contract with inclusive minutes, the call will use up your minutes in the same way as any other call. If you use a landline or pay-as-you-go mobile you will be billed at the standard rate for landline numbers in the same way as any other call.
In the Meeting
On entering the meeting you will be put into a virtual ‘waiting room’ with a message that a host needs to add you into the meeting. The hosts will get an alert that you are in the waiting room and will add you into the main ‘room’ from there.
The audio and camera of everyone in the meeting except the speaker leading the service will be disabled. This means that everyone will see and hear the speaker, but you will not be able to see or hear anyone else and neither the other participants nor the speaker will be able to see or hear you. This is to avoid background noise affecting the entire meeting.
Having said that, at the start of the meeting we may briefly activate your audio and camera so you can confirm that you can see and hear the meeting. This may seem something like a school register!
In the near future we hope to use the breakout rooms feature to allow members to socialise and pray together via Zoom, but we are starting simple and building up as we all get used to using Zoom. Watch this space for further details for this.
Bank Details/Church Tithes and Offerings Information
'Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine' Proverbs 3:9-10
An aspect of our worship to consider is the importance of how and why we make our offerings. Our desire to give of our first fruits to the storehouse can be impeded by a lack of convenience, and yet the word of God compels us continue where there is a way. A dangerous mistake for any Christian is to believe that our giving is somehow an unhappy duty, rather than a joyous sacrifice in the knowledge that God has provided for us first and that all we are doing is honouring Him by submitting willingly to our inherent need to contribute to His Church.
There are currently three ways that we can continue to make our tithes and offerings. Please take note of the details of Gift Aid giving. This is a hugely important step where we can make a real difference if we are a tax payer.
Firstly, below are the details of the church bank account for all who would like to send a one off BACS payment or set up a standing order.
It is by far the easiest and most convenient way to pay your offering on a regular basis. If you bank online, you can easily set this up and control everything yourself.
Where you do not bank online all the details you will need to give to your bank are listed below.
For anything you don't understand please get in touch with Emma Campbell who will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Standing orders are completely controlled by you and can be cancelled or amended at any time. Additionally, all payments are totally private arrangements and NEVER discussed at any church meetings.
The details you'll need for both of these transactions are....
Account Name: New Hope Baptist Church
Nat West Bank
Sort Code: 60 07 06
Account Number: 40778061
Gift Aid is a scheme which allows charities to claim from HMRC, the basic rate of tax their donors have paid. Gift Aid increases the value of donations by 25%, so it means even more money goes to the causes you care about – and it won't cost you extra.
If you have completed a gift aid form for the church and are a tax payer can you please add your name in the payment description to keep for evidence of Gift Aid Giving.
Secondly, at the bottom of every page on this website is a 'donate' button where we can pay your tithes by way of PayPal. This can be a convenient way, particularly where we have an email account. If you do not already have the facility of PayPal it its easy and convenient to set it up on any of your devices.
Thirdly, where you would only make your offerings in cash, I would suggest that you set aside at your usual intervals, the amount you choose to give. We will eventually return to a normality where you will be able to pass this on to our church treasurer. Again, if you do this please give attention to the Gift Aid scheme.
