We have invested in the future of the centre, giving it a lockdown face lift and fresh decorations to welcome you upon your return to meetings.
Our large temple and dining room are a perfect fit for meetings whilst observing social-distancing rules.
Our car park allows members to mitigate their use of public transport.
If you currently meet at venues that are inappropriate or difficult to use we would be pleased to welcome you.
Please consider SELMC when planning your return, the Centre's future is in your hands.
Stay safe and well.

Royal Arch Awareness Evening
The Kent Club presents a Royal Arch Awareness Night
On Wednesday 7th April 2021 at 8pm, E. Comp's Patrick Penny & Simon White, the Second and Third Metropolitan Grand Principals respectively, headlined an online evening for the Kent Club, talking through the intricacies & fun of RA.
Members heard about why the Royal Arch is crucial as the next stage after being made a Master Mason, what Patrick and Simon find so enjoyable about it, and something about their journey to the leadership positions they now hold.
It was a chance to find out more about the Holy Royal Arch, and to ask those burning questions members had.
