When we are gathering in our building again, you can expect a welcoming, relaxed environment. Feel free to dress casual. We'd suggest you arrive 15–25 minutes before the service begins, especially if you have kids. Stop by the New Here desk, our team would be happy to show you around and offer you a cup of coffee.
