Balham, South London Group

About Us

We are a friendly group - eager to share ideas and learn from others.

We start each session with tea/coffee and a general chat about any activities or events that we have experienced or heard about that would be of interest to other members. We then review the topic(s) for the evening along with open and honest discussions about each topic in which everyone’s views are respected.
It is a great way to hear other people’s views and put your own in a friendly, non-judgemental environment.

Local PCN members and anyone who is interested in Progressive Christianity are all welcome to join us.  Even if you are not sure that you want to attend regularly, please feel free to come along for a “taster” session.
