Shabbat day outline
As a Kehilla (community / congregation) we gather together every Shabbat morning and welcome all those who wish to join us for Shacharit Prayer, followed by a light fellowship lunch and then our Torah service.
Our Torah Service
Our Torah service follows the yearly reading cycle based on the calendar that mainstream Judaism uses. We read and study the Torah Parashah that millions of others (both Jew and Grafted-In Gentile) study every week. This is an opportunity to learn G-d’s Word through teaching and respectful discussion.
Shabbat Day Fellowship
Shacharit Prayer Service
Shacharit (Morning Prayers)
This is a liturgical prayer service based on the first (morning) prayer of the three daily prayers of Judaism, which typically line up with the Temple services (if it were still standing).
Light Meal (Kiddusha Raba)
Kiddusha Raba and Breaking of Bread
We follow the tradition that Yeshua also followed when He said the Bracha (Blessing) over the bread before eating. The light fellowship meal starts with Kiddusha Raba, which means “the great sanctification” to set this day and meal apart for HaShem. (Due to current Covid restrictions, participants are asked to please bring their own light meal).
Torah Reading & Study
Fellowship Coffee Break
Beit Midrash (House of Learning)
Our service times are specifically tailored for those who have, or are, embracing the walk of Messianic Judaism, and wish to join us on this exciting journey, and visitors are always welcome. We are establishing a unique environment with a mix of Hebrew and English that will allow everyone to participate and draw closer to G-d individually and as well as a community.
Our Beit Midrash (House of Messianic Learning) starts in the afternoon with a short time of fellowship over a cup of coffee. These times are specifically open to Believers in G-d from other walks of faith, in particular Christianity and Judaism. The Beit Midrash is more a casual format that offers a mixture of teaching and interactive participation. The topics cover a wide range from the Moedim (Appointed Times) to moral and ethical living.
