       Baljaffray Parish Church 
       Grampian Way, 
       Bearsden
       Glasgow

The new venue is 2 miles west of Milngavie next to Baljaffray shopping centre where there is plenty of parking. 

Meetings are usually on the second Monday of the month at 7.30pm.

During the Covid-19 pandemic the Group has organised meetings online, and may continue to do so from time to time, or may stream talks from the church via Zoom.
