We occasionally have a 40/20 service in the morning or afternoon. In these services all members of the congregation are offered an option of staying in the church for the sermon or going into the hall for discussion and activities based on the theme of the service. Those who go into the hall then rejoin the rest of the congregation and there is an opportunity to share our thoughts.
