We will keep the Centre open from 15:00- 16:00 for quiet prayer, or for an opportunity to chat with other participants.
Please bring a packed lunch. Tea, coffee and biscuits are readily available. The suggested donation for the day is £30 - all donations go towards helping to run the centre and are most welcome.
However please do not let finance be a hurdle, give as much or as little - just what you can afford.
If you are able to support the Bursary Fund by donating a little more than the suggested donation that would be most welcome.
