Friendship Hour

Friendship hour takes place on most months and is an opportunity to come together to learn about different faiths and have time for prayer and reflection together

Everyone is very welcome, do just come along

Friendship hour is taken in turns by different faiths and at different venues, usually the place of worship of those leading it. The dates and venues are sent out to those on our mailing list and are also posted on our website and facebook pages

Mostly Friendship Hour happens on the last Thursday of the month but the date can vary depending on availability of those leading it. The time is always 7-8pm

On May 10th The IFCG will be participating in Dying Matters Week with its own contribution – Dying to Know. This special day will be held at the Unitarian Church from 7.30 am to 6.30pm. More information to follow.

At the Friends Meeting House in Brighton

Booking is now open for this special event – a talk by Zen Buddhist monastics including a Q&A session.   . Everyone is welcome, of any faith or none.

This group of eight Zen Buddhist monastics – four nuns and four monks – from Plum Village Monastery in France is coming to Brighton as part of a tour of the UK and Ireland throughout May and June.  You can find further information about the tour at .   This particular event is being organized by Pebbles Sangha (Brighton) and Walking in Peace Sangha (Lewes), both of which are part of Plum Village UK.  We practice mindfulness meditation in the tradition of the late Zen Master, the Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh
