Our Beckenham lecture meetings are held in Beckenham Methodist Church BR3 5JE at 2.30pm on the first Thursday of most months. Doors open at 2pm. The church has disabled access and facilities with a step-free entrance from Bevington Road.
Joy's Kitchen in the church entrance area is open for snacks and drinks before our meetings during school term times.
Visitors are very welcome and our meetings are a good opportunity to find out more about the Centre. Admission is £7 for visitors and £5 for our Centre members. Centre members with season tickets are admitted free of charge.
