Our Sunday services are held in the chapel on the first and third Sundays of each month at 9.30 a.m. Quiet attention is given by those attending, all taking part in the singing of the hymns, the audible repetition of the Lord's Prayer, and the Responsive Reading. The Thanksgiving service is well attended and the testimonies given are inspiring.

The Sunday interviews are arranged during the week, by the Christian Science librarian, for women needing a practitioner's assistance. A worker remains after the service each Sunday, and the women have the opportunity of talking with the worker. Two lectures were given this year.
