Every Thursday, 7:00pm - 9:30pm.
The evening is usually structured in two halves. In the first half there is a meditation practice, and after a short tea break, we will explore another aspect of Buddhism either with a talk and dicussion, or other practices including pūjā.
From time to time, special events such as mitra ceremonies will be held on Saṅgha Night.

Absolutely. Though of course you'll get those most out of the class by attending the whole series, there's no need to wait until the start of the next series if you want to start coming.
A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting and making offerings.
If coming on a pūjā night and you have not done it before, please let the class leader know so they can give an introduction.
Since the meditation practice is usually without instruction, and the topics covered are quite in depth, this class is not well suited for newcomers.
If you can't make our Wednesday Newcomers Night, the Saturday Dharma Morning class is a more suitable alternative.
The class is best suited for those who have attended an entire series (or most of a series) on Newcomers Night or Dharma Morning.
All of our classes are run on a donation basis. The suggested amount is £7, but this is not a set charge. We just ask you to give what you can to support the class, and everyone is equally welcome, even if you cannot give anything at all.
