Experiment with Light introductory weekend

Friday, 5 May, 2017 - 16:00 to Sunday, 7 May, 2017 - 14:00

In the serenity of Claridge House, this retreat offers a meditative practice, based on the early Friends' experience of waiting in the Light, to help us explore the deeper issues of our lives. This can be a searching and powerful process, leading to fuller understanding and insight into ourselves and our leadings. The weekend is led by Angela Greenwood, an experienced Experiment with Light practitioner, having been involved in two Light Groups for over ten years.

Journeymen Theatre - The Bundle at KingstonQuaker Centre

Friday, 2 June, 2017 - 19:00 to 20:30

The company that creates Quaker themed plays and performs them for us wherever there’s enough floor space will bring their latest production to Kingston  Quaker Centre.

The Bundle shows us some of the background to our inhospitable environment for asylum seekers and a sense of the head dominated politics which have created our system.  It's shocking,  with flashes of painful humour.
