 Colehill Writers meets regularly to write together and to encourage each other. We share our writing if we want to, but this is a group which aims to inspire and support rather than offering detailed critical feedback.

We meet monthly at St Michael’s Church Centre, in the Alec Moore Room, usually on the third Friday of the month, from 1 till 4 pm. The group is self supporting so there is a small termly charge to cover our costs. We are open to all and welcome new members but we limit our numbers to 12.

Open to all but places are limited, so please contact Cilla Sparks t: 07759 835728 or email: if you would like to join us.

BuddhismEast Dorset Buddhism Group - This Group is Running
Group meets for meditation and discussion in the Alec Moore Room on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

The meeting begins with a 30 minute period of sitting meditation which is preceded and concluded by some brief chanting. For those new to meditation there is the possibility of basic instruction. The group then usually reads a Buddhist publication which is discussed informally, or occasionally a tape by a Buddhist teacher is listened to and then discussed. Meetings may end with a further short period of meditation. No experience is necessary to attend meetings and anyone interested will be made welcome.
