Visiting the Centre in Person

Visiting the Buddhist Centre in Changing Times

The Centre is working a bit differently since the Covid pandemic and the huge rise in energy prices. Our shop, reception, lounge and tea area are open on four days of the week, and we hold most of our activities here in-person now, often outside our public opening times, and with a few events online, or with an online option. Our shrine rooms are available for personal meditation practice and worship when we’re open and when not in use for classes, and the reference library is open. Groups from outside and inside our community are welcome to book our smaller meeting rooms, as they were before the pandemic.

We still love meeting first-time visitors and returners as well as old friends, and will keep on making changes as the world changes.


Opening Times:

• Tuesday - Thursday 11am - 3pm
• Saturday 10.30am - 2.30pm
