If you are calling outside of the service, you need public scope.  What kind of protection are you looking for?

The most without cutting off my nose.

I'm currently using 'Protected' and all works.

The scope modifier needed depends on where it is called from?  Is this called from inside the service instance?

1) 'private' is only visible inside a class
2) 'internal' is only visible within a class, and any other class in an assembly, but not outside.
3) 'protected' with 'static' are visible friend or member function of a derived class.
4) 'protected' without 'static' are visible to friends and inside in a derived class only through a pointer to, reference to, or object of the derived class.
5) 'public' is available everything

It sounds like 'protected' is the best you're gonna get.
