As well as our regular monthly meetings, we also organise one-off events. We aim for these to be entertaining, sociable , educational and interesting. Events we have organised in the last few years have included visits to places of historical interest, exhibitions, talks and social outings.
We also hold a stall at Nunhead Cemetery Open Day every year and join in with various interfaith events in Lewisham and surrounding areas.

For the schedule of our forthcoming monthly meetings and other events please go here.
