Events are back!  On Monday 6th September we began a new programme of events with a ‘Welcome Back’ meeting at Pip & Jim’s.

Future events will also take place on Monday evenings at Pip & Jim’s Church on Grafton Road, Leckhampton.

We will meet from 7pm for drinks and talks will begin at 7.30pm. Talks will usually last about 30-40 minutes and, after questions, we will mingle and host our speaker for friendly follow up discussion. All events should end at about 8.30pm.

The talks will continue to be free as a benefit of membership. and we invite you to bring guests who may be interested in our work and purpose. See below some details of our meetings up until Christmas. We will add further events for the new year as soon as we can confirm them.
