Event Info:

It is good to talk! It is also good to listen and be part of meaningful conversation, to be curious and explore interests in faith, spiritual practices and meaning in our lives.

Soul Space is a monthly, early evening gathering with short talks from guest speakers to start conversations. They will share how their faith helps them understand the world and current issues, as the group enjoys refreshments, snacks and good discussion in a friendly, relaxed space. With time for quiet reflection too.

Whether you want to join in conversation, ask questions or just listen…

Whether you are taking first steps to discover your own thoughts about faith or profess a particular faith and seek space to explore issues together…

Whether you are on your own personal journey, looking for company or have questions about the future of faith communities in Scotland…

…all are very welcome.
