The next community meeting will take place on Saturday 18th September between 9:30 and 12:30.
This will be a hybrid meeting. You can attend in person, or you can join via Zoom. The Zoom link is:
Meeting ID: 829 6992 3682
Because there is an expense involved in hiring the room at the Friends' Meeting House, we would ask all attendees to contribute if you possibly can. We normally ask for a minimum payment of £5. If you cannot afford this, then we will not insist. If you can afford more than £5, we will be grateful for your contribution.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Zoom only meeting this month.
Please also see the yellow box opposite.
The Person-Centred Community group meetings are open to anyone with a curiosity about the person-centred approach. We meet once a month on a Saturday morning and all newcomers are welcome. This is a drop-in meeting so you can come along and introduce yourself.
Our meetings are not facilitated. They are unstructured and develop according to what people bring in terms of their needs, interests and experiences. The aim is to offer a confidential atmosphere, one of respect and trust allowing people the chance to be open.
As this is a drop-in meeting, check with the other participants if you need an explicit agreement between yourselves for that meeting.
Meetings last for three hours and you may choose to count this towards your continuing professional development (CPD).
Venue, time and dates
Meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month at the Friends' Meeting House in Ship Street, Brighton BN1 1AF (see map on left)
The meeting normally runs from 9:30 to 12:30, with a short break at around 11 o'clock.
The cost is £5 to cover hire of the room. This applies both to those attending in person as well as those joining via Zoom. If, incidentally, you can't manage £5, then we will not insist. By the same token, if you can manage a little more than £5, your additional support will be appreciated.
If you are paying online, our bank details are:
PERSON CENTRED COMMUNITY;
No payment is required in order to gain access to the meeting online. We simply ask that you contribute either before or after the meeting, exactly as you would if attending in person.
We are happy to accept cash. Alternatively, please feel free to pay using the bank details given above.
There are still safety restrictions relating to those attending in person.
There is no access to the kitchen, so, if you want refreshments, you will have to bring these yourselves.
Please also remember to bring a mask. You won't need one at the meeting, but you will need one when moving around the rest of the building.
Numbers are limited. If you intend to attend, please contact William. It is unlikely in fact that we will have to turn anyone away; but we advise contacting us just in case.
We also organise workshops with nationally and internationally respected facilitators. Click here to see what workshops we have coming up...
