General Services and Calendar

Well over 1000 services take place in the building every year and people from all around the world find it an inspiring space in which to worship. Services take place every day and range in style and length from very simple acts of worship to larger, more ceremonial occasions.

These are open to all and if you are a first time visitor from this country, or from abroad, you are especially welcome.
