PRAY WITH US IN PERSON
Shabbat mornings 8, 15 and 22 August (09:00-10:00)
Though outdoor activities are not without risk, the advice is that they are substantially safer than gathering inside.  We will therefore be be running a number of small outdoor services in the synagogue sukkah during August, weather permitting.
These services will initially take place as an early service on Shabbat mornings, and may then be extended to weekday mornings later in the month and into early September, subject to demand.

Places in these services will be very limited and will need to be pre-booked by clicking here.

The services will be subject to strict distancing and protective measures to protect staff and members.
Please note that this service is subject to the weather.  There will be no toilet or changing facilities available. We ask that you please do not come if you have been unwell with any of the symptoms of Covid-19.
By signing up for these services, you give permission for us to share your name and contact details with the NHS Test and Trace service in case of a positive Covid test by you or another member of the group.
