    Good day,

    Today as I had the pleasure of meeting Melinda at the market, I was told there are Sunday meetings. I’m really interested in going and meeting other people with whom I can practice and improve my language. I was wondering if you could tell me the time in which the conversation meetings are held.

      The conversation clubs at the church are Wednesdays from 10:30 AM to 12, and Fridays from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm and they are completely free. You can find information about other services and events here on our website. We’d love to meet you and help you improve your English.
