We are a friendly group - eager to share ideas and learn from others.
We start each session with tea/coffee (or something stronger if you wish!) 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 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.
Venue & Meeting TimesWe will next be meeting from 2.00 - 3.30pm on Wednesday 20th October
After an 18 month break due to COVID, we have now returned to meeting at our usual venue of The Grove pub in Balham.
Some of us take a light lunch at 1pm before the meeting starts at 2pm, so you are welcome to join us then.
Please contact the convenor - Adrian Lambourne - for details for each month.
