Bath Buddhist Group

The Bath Buddhist Group was established over forty years ago and aims to promote an interest in Buddhism and to encourage its study and application. We welcome all who are interested in Buddhist practice and teachings, whether you are new to Buddhism or have an established practice, and whether you subscribe to a particular tradition or not.

Meetings resumed on 7th October!

The meeting room at Bath Scout Headquarters is now available again and we held our first meeting on Thursday 7th October.

We are very happy to be practising together again and sharing what the Buddha taught.

We are being cautious to start with in terms of Covid risk, so meetings are currently limited to 10. We also invite people to wear face coverings if they are able. These measures can be reviewed if members wish and as Covid numbers come down.

Please do let us know by email if you plan to join us by the Tuesday before each Thursday meeting. You will be very welcome.
