Wednesday Evening Service
A smaller, more intimate gathering, our Wednesday evening Oasis starts with meditation at 6:30 p.m., then continues with service from 7:00 until 8:00 p.m.
“First Wednesday” of each month is currently a “satsang” – style service, which is an hour of informal conversation about spiritual perspective with our senior minister Reverend Jeffrey.
Any other Wednesday evening you will find good company, music, an inspirational message and perhaps most importantly a place to come mid-week, to rest and reflect check in with your own heart, mind and soul.
It’s the perfect mid-week pause in our busy lives!
