#If the Tzibur did not yet reach [[Barchu]] one may pray [[Mincha]] in the shul even if they will reach [[Barchu]] while one is still saying [[Mincha]], nonetheless, it is preferable to say it outside the Shul (if the Tzibbur will reach [[Barchu]] while one is still saying [[Mincha]]).<ref>Shulchan Aruch 263:16, Mishna Brurah 263:63 </ref>
===Eating the Meal Before Praying Maariv===
# According to many poskim it is permitted to pray [[Mincha]] early, before or after [[Plag Hamincha]], then accept Shabbat, recite [[Kabbalat Shabbat]], recite [[Kiddush]] and have the [[Friday night meal]]. Then one would pray [[Maariv]] afterwards. One should be careful not to start the meal within a half hour of the time for Maariv.<ref>Magen Avraham 271:5, Mishna Brurah 271:11, Eliya Rabba 271:5, Rav Elyashiv (cited by Dirshu 271:3), Beir Heitev 271:4, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 77:4. Taz 271:4 also accept this practice as Eliya Rabba notes. Peulat Sachir on Maaseh Rav 117:1 notes that one could accept Shabbat for the Magen Avraham with a verbal declaration or by reciting Mizmor Shir Shel Yom Hashabbat.</ref> Some rabbis disagree with this practice.<ref>Gra in Maaseh Rav n. 117, Nefesh Harav p. 158</ref>
