Requests are always honored for the presence of a chaplain of the residents’ choice.

Among groups who regularly entertain the residents are musicians who play and sing hymns and other inspirational songs which are very much appreciated. A period of Bible reading and prayer takes place on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. This is available for all residents, whatever their Church preference.
