Thinking Lunches and Evenings

On every first Thursday of the month Marlborough Road Methodist Church hosts a Thinking Lunch comprising a talk on an interesting, relevant subject followed by questions and answers.  Each session begin at 12:30pm and end at about 1:30pm, and takes place in the church itself.  You are welcome to bring a packed lunch.  There is generally a collection for a charity nominated by the speaker.

Occasionally we also host Thinking Evenings either on Zoom or in the church.
