Monthly Meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 3.00pm - 5.00pm at St Luke's Church, Langley Way, Watford.

In addition to hearing a visiting speaker, this also provides members with an opportunity to pick up a copy of our monthly Newsletter, to hear the latest updates on forthcoming events and Study Group matters and socialise with other members over a cup of coffee.
