Also, after voting, would you be so kind as to indicate what service(s) are given and on what days?  Please indicate as well whether the services are with a priest or reader's services.

As for me, outside the Sunday cycle of services (Great Vespers on Saturday nights) and the feast day liturgies, my church offers nothing else during the week.

The church I have most recently attended (Saturday Vespers and Sunday Divine Liturgy) today, also offers a weekly Wednesday Evening Paraclesis.

The other church I attend also has a weekly Wednesday evening service, but for them it is Vespers.

Vigil on Saturday, Liturgy on Sunday, Vigil on the day before the feast and Liturgy on the day of the Feast - in Warsaw.

Same as above and an Akathyst to St. Martyrs of Vilnius on Wednesday and an Akathyst to St. George on Thursday - in Białystok.

Well, vespers on Saturday evening, with very few or none in attendance, orthros liturgy on Sunday morning plus always vespers on Sunday evening, much better attended; vespers, orthros and
liturgy on all feast days-3 days for Easter&Christmas, 2 days for Pentecost etc; days like St Elijah, Ss. Constantine and Helen, Synaxis of St. John the Baptist and the like always observed.
Nothing on regular, non-feast days. Only in monasteries&cathedrals they do the liturgy and the offices on those days. Our cathedral has daily vespers, orthros & liturgy.

Vespers on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Most often with a priest, though we have readers who will conduct the service in the priest's absence when necessary.

The parish near my university tends to only have services with a priest on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings, unless there's a major feast during the week. A small group of us conduct daily lay-matins and vespers though.

My parish used to have daily liturgies a few years ago, but our priest is now doing other things during the week; I think it was too much for him.

These days besides feasts and their accompanying vigils, the only weekly regular service we have is a Wednesday evening Vespers at 6:00, which the priest leads. Not many people usually attend. I went a couple of weeks ago and it was just me and the priest, so I had to do the reading. I don't know the tones very well, so I simply read everything as best I could in a monotone chanting voice, just trying to keep the order of the service straight.
