It was an honor to see Bishop Green give his service. One of the most unique religious experiences I have seen. The service starts at 11.30 on Sunday and lasts 2 hrs.

Is there any way to find out in advance whether Rev. Green will be present on Sunday? Or just chance?

He is usually there but if not the service is still worth experiencing.
Is there a service on a Thursday evening, or is it only Sunday services?
