Open for a few hours today!
Tue 22nd Sep : 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Manchester Buddhist Centre has been closed as a building since March, because of the Coronavirus outbreak. After a lot of planning and health and safety work, we’re now open for a few hours on Tuesdays. We’ll see how that goes, and review the decision on 22nd September. It’s going well so far!
Thinking of coming to the Centre on a Tuesday?
Firstly, please read our advice on visiting the Centre.
On what to expect – well, you’ll find a helpful receptionist in a face-covering, most likely Kevin or Judith. You can book on to courses and find out more about Buddhism, our Buddhist community and what we do here. Parts of the building and its statuary and art works may be available to look at – certainly those on the ground floor. The book and gift shop will be open, where you can pay by card – no minimum amount – or in cash. Very sorry but we can’t take donations of second hand books at the moment.
Still mostly online
We are committed to continuing to share our teachings, practices and friendly connections during this challenging period, and our classes, courses and other events are currently available online through Zoom and sometimes YouTube. We’ll continue offering online events and classes through September and beyond, maybe alongside in-person events, or events that are a mix of in-person and online.
Unfortunately, our much loved Earth Cafe will not be re-opening.
Staying in touch
If anything changes to an event or course that you have booked on, we will be in touch by email. We’re responding to emails at email@example.com, but we’re afraid we are not able to answer phone calls while we’re closed. Please check the website frequently, and join our mailing list to stay up to date with new online events, and news on reopening.
