About Norwich Buddhist Centre

Latest Covid Precautions

Following the Governments new regulations for places of worship, all visitors to the Centre are requested to wear masks or visors unless they are exempt. We also continue to offer hand sanitiser, spare masks and the NHS track and trace QR code at reception, as well as ventilated spaces.  We will no longer be serving tea after classes to minimise close contact in reception. We are monitoring the Governments advice and if there are further changes, we will let you know via the newsletter, Facebook and our website.  We hope everyone will feel able to contribute to a feeling of care and consideration for others whilst at the Centre.

About Us

Spread across three floors, our Centre has a reception area, a ground floor shrine room, the main shrine room and lending library on the second floor and a yoga studio on the top floor.

Our Centre has a Council which is the legal governing body of the Charity and meets monthly to discuss new initiatives, current issues and financial matters relating to the Centre.

As with all Triratna Buddhist Centres, we also have a President, who is from a different Triratna Buddhist Centre. Presidents offer an outside perspective to the Council, as well as providing support and encouragement.

Our classes and courses are run by experienced teachers.

Our Council members, President and teachers offer their time freely and all of these roles are unpaid.

The day to day running of our Centre is done by a small team of Co-ordinators. They work closely with the Council and take on the administration of the Centre as well as working with volunteers and on specific projects.

You do not need to consider yourself a Buddhist to come to the Centre – all are welcome.
