Read & Discover (online)

This group has a specific focus on reading the Bible with International Students, from any background, faith or belief. Each meeting we read a bible text, reflect on its context, learn to cross-reference to other parts of the Bible and relate it to our everyday life. No preparation required! Come along to read, discover and share your thoughts in an informal and relaxed setting. Join this online event using the details provided.

Quaker Meeting

1.15 – 1.45pm

Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy some stillness over lunchtime the Quaker way. Arrive from 1pm. We settle into silence for half an hour from quarter past. Quakers value peace, equality, truth, simplicity and the natural world. There are no ministers, nor is there a fixed creed. In the quiet we look for a sense of connection and seek guidance. 

There’s no need to book – just drop in when it feels right for you.

Silent meditation to calm the mind and reduce the stress of a busy day. Followed by reflection, then a guided meditation and finally, a short Buddhist reading to close the session. Feel free to stay afterwards and join us in the Common Room for a chat. Please bring vegetarian food to share.
Sessions led by Buddhist Chaplain Sister Jinho and run until around the end of the year. No need to book, simply come along.  Any questions, please email Sister Jinho.
