Newcomers

centre picsWhether you’re looking to find a little peace, make better choices, enrich your life or to find a meaningful spiritual path, you’ll find something here for you.

We’re keen to develop a culture of generosity so there is no charge for these sessions, but we’ll invite you to give what you can. Of course you don’t have to give anything if you don’t want or can’t afford to, but we hope you’ll be able to contribute appropriately to the running costs of the centre so more people can benefit. (Each visit costs an average of £11)
