Big Group Shot Indoors RX10IV Focus Flash Mode Help

Hi,  I mostly take pictures outside - birds, nature, landscape - and mostly birds.  I have hardly used this camera indoors except for some product shots of stuff I was selling.

This weekend is a big family event and I am hoping to take a big group shot indoors.  I bought an external flash - Godox TT 350S.  I will plan to bounce it off the ceiling.

I have not photographed an event indoors in almost 8 years and then it was using a Canon G12.

I have not used an external flash in a long time - 15 yrs -- I'll have a day to practice and experiment with it.

Regarding camera settings:  I am wondering if I should use Center Focus or Wide?

The room has big windows but it is supposed to be rainy so it will not be the best light.  The group shot will be against a wood panel wall opposite the windows.  Any settings recommendations will be appreciated.

Any other advice will be appreciated.  I'll have time to try a couple variations when I take the shot but not a whole lot of time.  It is never easy to wrangle all those people.  I may end up stitching the photo together after the fact if I can't get everyone - 55 people - in the shot.

Thanks in advance.  Stephanie
