I spent some time ahead exploring Zoom. We had a successful three-cornered chat with some members for testing in advance. Then spent time finding out how to display a DVD (Share Screen + also Share Computer Sound). Eventually, 4 of us met up on the night, chatted, prayed together, sang along with a YouTube worship song, watched the DVD session, and tolerated having to restart every forty minutes on the free version of Zoom. In summary, only one participant had used the app before, so it was surprisingly successful. Two said they appreciated the extra breaks, and we all enjoyed the session. I'm planning to spend time with one or two of the technologically challenged to see if I can get them started.
