Groups who are in the company of their own minister are welcome to use the quiet room for their own services, and a wardrobe contains all the necessary supplies for Christian services. Regular weekly services are held on Sunday at 11:00, and are presided over by airport chaplains. On average, more than one hundred people use the room daily.


The Meditation Centre has three rooms:

  • The Quiet Room for individual prayer, meditation and reflection - or simply to find peace and quiet. Groups with their own minister are welcome to hold short services here. The Airport Chaplaincy holds a church service in this room every Sunday at 11:00 at which all are welcome.

  • The Reading Room with brochures and magazines covering a range of issues and questions of personal spirituality.

  • The Meeting Room where visitors can drop in for a talk with one of the staff.
