Join us for our Shacharit service on Saturday mornings at 1030 – hear the week’s Torah reading, a sermon by the Rabbi or a guest speaker, sometimes a discussion, and have the opportunity to pray and sing with the community. Our services are informal, inclusive, participative and meaningful.
Come and celebrate Shabbat with our under-6s – we’ll be singing, dancing, telling stories and making things every fortnight on Saturday mornings – once a month on Zoom at 1030 & once a month in person at 1115 joining the rest of the community for Kiddush. When there isn’t a Torah Tots, we put out toys and colouring at the back of the hall and young children are always welcome to chill out there!
Once a term we have a family-friendly service for the whole community where our kids take the lead and we do singing, drumming, sharing and Bibliodrama to engage children, young people and the young at heart!
An alternative service every couple of months with poetry, new music, and a discussion instead of a sermon. We uncover the service structure to discover the spirituality held within.
We hold special services, often with a guest speaker, for Mental Health Shabbat, Pride Shabbat, Remembrance Shabbat, Interfaith Shabbat, Green Shabbat and Human Rights Shabbat among others.
Finish the week with our monthly Friday events:
