Cleaning & Maintenance Days
The first Saturday of each month. 12:30pm – 3:30pm
Every week people come to the Sydney Buddhist Centre to learn to meditate, to practice the Dharma, and to deepen friendships. Keeping the centre running and looking beautiful depends on the generosity of many people, not only financially, but practically - running and supporting classes, performing administration work, buying supplies, and of course the practical maintenance of the building.
Every month a group like to give back by coming together for a few hours in the afternoon to do the cleaning and maintenance needed to keep the Sydney Buddhist Centre looking beautiful and suitable for our holding activities. The work will include cleaning, organisation, light gardening at the front of the building, and building maintenance. We hope people who enjoy coming to the Sydney Buddhist Centre will find participating great way to give back in a meaningful and practical way and be enjoyable and productive for newcomers as well as old hands.
You may like to join the Saturday Dharma Morning class beforehand, and we will end the day with a simple (re)dedication ceremony.
