On the second and subsequent Sundays each month, worship in the Meeting House will be from 10.45 am to 11.45 am; on the first Sunday in the month, it will take place in the Meeting House from 10.45 to 11.30am, followed by 30 minutes for refreshments and then our Meeting for Worship for Business from 12 noon onwards.
