Triratna Buddhist Group (Worthing)

The Worthing Triratna Buddhist Community meets every Thursday 7.30 – 9.30pm

We place an emphasis on friendliness, meditation, study and bringing our understandings of Buddhism to our daily lives. We have practice sessions on some Saturdays. On Tuesday evenings some of us meet to study. We take it in turns to have a film night most months at each other’s homes.

If you feel an inner voice wanting to make sense of life, wanting to find a better way to live in the world or maybe a clear vision or desire for greater freedom in this life, in this world then Buddhism is well worth a look. Please feel free to drop in and find out more.

Winter Solstice celebration and Yuletide closure

We will be celebrating the Winter Solstice on Thursday, 21st December (from 7:30 pm) and holding a Death Cafe, contemplating the impermanence of our existence with conversations around death.
Following this, we will be closed over the Yuletide period with no Sangha meeting on Thursday 28th December. We will reconvene on Thursday, 4th January 2024.
Morning meditations will continue unaffected.

Keep practising; a dharma life doesn’t stop whatever the conditions.



We have a Buddhism and meditation evening every Thursday from 7.30 – 9.30 pm. We usually close for one or two Thursdays over Yuletide.

The evenings are open to everyone regardless of experience, age, gender, race, class. A warm welcome awaits – just turn up – we’re on the ground floor, through the front door and to the left.

Everyone is welcome to attend from newcomers wanting to dip their toes in, to those wishing to go deeper in their practice.

Study Courses

For those wishing to learn more about Buddhism we run courses of dharma study and go on regular retreats to deepen our practice.



The first Thursday of each month is usually a practice evening – an opportunity to  meditate together and hold a Puja, or devotional ritual.

We celebrate key occasions throughout the Buddhist year as well as the Summer and Winter solstices.

We also meet up regularly, for a practice morning one Saturday each month.
