Services are held each Shabbat for which we use the new Reform Prayer Book and the Hertz Chumash.
On Shabbat morning there is a joint kiddush with Mosaic Liberal after the service.
Normally once a month, in addition to the main Shabbat morning service, there is an alternative ‘Shabbat Shira’ service for children (parents, grandparents and the young-at-heart are most welcome!) with a focus on singing, music and noise!
Services are also held on all major festivals, as well as a Communal seder on 2nd night Pesach and lively celebrations of Purim, Chanukah and Simchat Torah.
Our services are greatly enhanced by our Choir and visitors and guests can be assured of a warm welcome. If you can’t get to the Synagogue in person, you can always join the service on-line by watching our live video streaming.
