The Philip Project South will run on the following ten dates, 9am to 1pm (three dates in Autumn term, four dates in Spring term, and three dates in Summer term:

  • Online: from 9.30am to 1pm :  Sat 7 Nov, / Sat 21 Nov / Sat 12 Dec 2020

Plus Sat 9 Jan – optional extra date to meet for prayer

Depending on government guidance in place at the time, we will run sessions online (on zoom) or in person. We anticipate that all the Autumn 2020 dates will be online, but we hope that it may be possible to meet in person by Spring/Summer 2021.

It is looking most likely that the weekend away will not happen in person, but there is a provisional plan is for a national online Philip Project day, on either 20 or 27 February, to be confirmed, to include all the Philip Projects around the country (Scotland, North West, Cambridge, Guildford, Nottingham, London, Southampton).
