The morning and evening services are conducted every day at the UK Centre.
At the morning service, we express our gratitude for the gift of life given by God's complete providence and pray for blessings to keep us in good health and free of troubles. At the evening service, we reflect on ourselves, thank God for guiding us through the day and ask God for continued blessings tomorrow.
We are taught that the Service is the ultimate means of universal salvation. We practice the Hand with Dance Movements and the musical instruments for the service, taking as much opportunity as possible.
The Monthly Service takes place at the Tenrikyo UK Centre every first Sunday of each Month. After the Service there is usually a sermon followed by Divine Healing session and a tea party.
