Late for shul Friday night


One who comes to shul Friday evening before sunset and sees that the shul has accepted Shabbat already and is up to maariv, may respond to Barchu at the start of maariv and then daven minchah only if he explicitly intended not to accept Shabbat with his response to Barchu.

Note that he would need to step out to daven minchah, so as not to veer from the communal acceptance of Shabbos.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:37)

Have a great day,
