Branches usually meet monthly over a half-day, often 11 am - 3 pm. Local details vary. Places of meeting are usually members' homes. This may take the form of a shared meal with Liturgy or Eucharist, concerns and interests of personal discipleship and some discussion or study of an agreed topic.

All Members and Associates are attached to one of five Regional Branches. Please contact the Secretaries if you would like to know more about meetings or events.

The Branch Secretaries are the local contact points for the Community.

Branch Secretaries & Meetings

Midlands:  Chris and Lorraine Smedley tel 0115 9288430.  Monthly meetings.

London: Linda Marshall email or tel 01784 456474. 

We meet on Saturdays, for about 3 hours, starting at 2.30pm and ending with tea, for which we each bring something to share. Our usual venue is in Streatham at a member's home.

At our first meeting for the new year we will be looking at Bishop Philip North's talk Hope for the Poor, delivered at the Ebbsfleet Lay Congress last Autumn and then published in New Directions. Our February meeting date coincides with a workshop at St Paul's Cathedral on Searching for the historical Jesus, which we were hoping to attend, but it was already fully booked by early December, so we will be planning further topics at our January meeting.
