We are delighted to be welcoming members and friends back to our building. Before joining us in person, please do ensure you read the updated guidance here.

Friday Evening

Our services on Friday evenings begin at 6.30pm. During the service, we learn a bit about the weekly Torah portion with interactive learning led by Rabbi Benji, Yael or a member of our community. We stream our Shabbat Services online and, if you're unable to join us in person, you'll be able to access the Shabbat Evening Service here.

After our services, join us for a lovely Kiddush. Once a month these are accompanied with a speaker as part of our Westminster Voices programme - click here for more information.

Finally, we hold different dinners on Friday evenings: Themed Shabbat Dinners for our Young Professionals group, as well as Themed Dinners for our wider membership; we also invite members to host a Shabbat Dinner for a smaller group of ten here at the Synagogue. For more information about any of these dinners or to host one of your own, click here.

Saturday Morning

Our morning service is held at 10.30am, do come along beforehand to share a hot drink with members and get to know our community. On certain Shabbatot, we hold a Parsha Class before the service, where you can spend 30 minutes exploring the weekly Torah portion with other members. We stream our Shabbat Services online and, if you're unable to join us in person, you'll be able to access the Shabbat Morning Service here.

We hold our intergenerational Shabbat B'Yachad Services throughout the year, click here to request dates and more information, as well as Tots Shabbat for our youngest members. Of course, we've also got our weekly classes for children, Or Shabbat, which starts at 10:00am.

After the service, join us for a lovely community Kiddush or once a month, join us for Oneg Shabbat Lunches where we explore a specific topic over a tasty meal.

Shabbat Learning!

At Westminster Synagogue, we pride ourselves on ensuring that education is at the heart of what we do. Shabbat gives us a perfect chance to explore a whole variety of topics which we hope you enjoy engaging with.

  • Shabbat Packs - We have a resource bank of Shabbat Packs: past D'vrei Torah on the weekly portion, along with a bit of learning about one of our Psalms or Prayers that we sing in the Shabbat Service, followed by Yoav leading us in the song. If you want to go straight to the songs, click on the links below (timings afterwards indicates when the song starts)
  • Chulyot - As part of the community's initiative to enhance music in our services, we are holding Chulyot sessions in which we will especially focus on singing for Friday Nights. We will also explore some of the meaning and structure of our prayers together so that you might even integrate some elements into your personal routine at home. Click here to learn more.
