The group meets on the last Wednesday of every month in St James Church at 2.00 pm.

It is a service lasting about 40 minutes, starting with a short meditation followed by a piece of music leading into 30 minutes of silent contemplative prayer.  A piece of music follows the silence, and ending with a short prayer.
