The Sakya Buddhist Centre is now open!

We’re pleased to announce that from Saturday 5 December, Sakya Buddhist Centre Bristol will be hosting face to face Discover Buddhism sessions on Saturday mornings from 10.30 – 11.30am. These will take place weekly from 10.30 – 11.30am and will be hosted in person and on Zoom to enable as many to attend as possible.

To attend in person, please email us to book your place at For the time being, our Tuesday Discover Buddhism sessions will continue on Zoom only – please contact us for the link.

The Discover Buddhism sessions include talks and reflection on 20 key Buddhist ideas as well as tranquillity meditation (with full instructions). They will last about an hour and all are welcome (recommended age is 12 and up if you’re wanting to bring along the family!).

There is no charge for these sessions but we do encourage donations, which help us to maintain the Sakya Buddhist Centre and its activities. A suggested amount is £5 (£3 for concessions). You can donate here: or donate at the Centre itself too.

We are following the government’s guidelines for places of worship so that we can open safely. We’ll have hand sanitiser stations available and as well as face coverings, if you need one as these are required in places of worship (unless of course you have a reasonable excuse not to wear one). You can read more about the guidance for places of worship here. We’ll also send you more information on what to expect at the Centre when you book.

If you would like further information on the sessions or to book your place for the Saturday sessions, please contact us at
