JBCL is a small non-residential centre run by two paid staff and many volunteers.
Our centre and other activities cost about £1,000 a week to run. Our teachers do not get paid, but we cover their expenses – a city centre location is expensive and some of our teachers travel a long way. We do not get any grants, and rely almost entirely on donations. If you want to support us, please donate towards the cost of these classes, or even better become a friend of the Centre and donate regularly.
• £3 for a lunchtime class
• £6 for an evening class
• £25 for a day class
If these are too much for you even the smallest donation makes a difference. Most of all, we hope you enjoy the classes, and benefit from them. Our only source of finance are donations from people attending events and from people who choose to become ‘Friends of JBCL’ and who make a commitment of time or money.
The formal structure is lead by the Director – Kerry Prest. Spiritual Programme Coordinator is Fiona Oliver. We are currently without a Centre Manager. A wonderfully diverse group of volunteers help with the day-to-day running of the Centre.
