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 for the session along with open and honest discussions 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-judgmental 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 meet from 2.00 to 3.30pm on a Tuesday - usually the second or third of each month
From March 2023, we will meet in Herne Hill at the Half Moon pub near to the railway station.
