This live online worship is made possible using web conferencing. We all see each other using web cams on our computers, laptops, and smartphones.

Online Quaker worship using Zoom video conferencing

If you do not have a web cam or do not wish to use one, you can still join us using audio only by calling an international phone number, just as you would for a conference call.

For more details and to request an email invitation with links and contact information, please email us at clerk@universalistfriends.org.

Blessings to all,

NOTE

  • Global Meeting for Worship (GMFW) always starts at 6:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). GMT is also known as Consolidated Universal Time (UTC).
  • GMT is a global standard which does NOT change, regardless of local “daylight savings time” policies. For example, England is now on British Summer Time (BST), but that does NOT change GMT/UTC.

Example 1: The eastern United States went on Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on March 3rd.

Example 2: On March 31st, England went on British Summer Time (BST).

Comments

Please confirm the times and day. 18:00 UTC may be too early for North American Friends who wish to attend. There is an online Meeting at Woodbrooke College in Birmingham.
I can forward an invitation to a specific email address. For folks in Europe. Thanks
In Peace, Michael

Friend Michael,

Thanks for an important question. 18:00 UTC (6:00 PM UTC) is correct.

The notion is that 18:00 CTU will allow people from 10:00 Pacific Time (UTC-8h) all the way across to 21:00 East Africa Time (UTC+3h) to participate before too early or late in their respective time zones.

Our assumption is that we will poll participants, look at patterns of attendance, and make adjustments as we go along.
