In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

It’s no coincidence that Harmony’s motto is ‘Serving & Encouraging’. This meeting brings together women of all ages and backgrounds to share their experiences in life and help encourage one another day by day.

Harmony, run by Marion Sladek and Anne Lytle, is an informal and sociable event for all women aged 18+. Held every few weeks in Buccleuch’s church hall, it’s a time for the ladies to get together and share thoughts on any given topic. From the ‘Apostles’ to ‘Zumba’ fitness, we cover everything (!) and the format of each meeting varies. For instance, we might watch a film, take a walk, organise a creative master-class or listen to others share their testimony.

Harmony is a great way to introduce friends to a spiritual environment without obligation or pressure. It’s completely free (although a donation towards the great home-baking doesn't go wrong) and a genuinely uplifting, encouraging experience.

We’d love to see you at one of our next meetings!

We meet in the Buccleuch church hall.

New members would be made most welcome.
