Lectures are given on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, starting at 10:30 a.m. Members and visitors are invited to listen to the choir and a lecture given in both Chinese and English. The topics of these lectures include the history and teachings of the Buddha, classical stories and narratives, and lessons drawn from present-day circumstances. Immediately following the lecture is an open discussion group, a light lunch, and a tour of the church for those who wish to see more of the building. Please note that the church will be closed on the fourth Sundays of November and December for the holidays.


Tours of the church are given after lecture and after our open discussion group on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. It will start with the golden image of the Buddha at the main altar. At this time, members of the church can answer any questions you may have about Buddhism, the church, and our history.
