Wellington Buddhist Centre is the hub of a friendly community of people who are interested in Buddhism and meet up regularly to meditate and support each other. The Centre is run by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, who teach and practise a non-sectarian style of Buddhism, suitable for people living in the contemporary Western world.

We run regular classes for newcomers to Buddhism and meditation, as well as a programme of other classes, events, retreats, festivals and study seminars for those with more experience.

If you want to find out more the best way is to come along to our Open Nights, every Tuesday at 7pm.
