Talks at Monthly Meetings
In "normal times" our Monthly Meetings are held in Broadmead Baptist Church at the bottom of Union Street BS1 3HY. They are open to all members as well as visitors. Coffee and biscuits are followed by a talk from an invited speaker. They are held on the third Tuesday of the month apart from August and the talk starts at 10.30am.
Our programme of meetings has recommenced using Zoom. The Zoom link is sent out to members by email shortly before each meeting. If you need to be reminded of the link just contact our chairperson with your name and membership number and she will send it to you. Please aim to join the meeting around 10.15am so that the talk can start promptly at 10.30am.
Scroll down to see the varied programme of talks for the next few months. There will be a guest speaker followed by small groups to socialise, discuss the talk and then ask questions.
