Northern Rivers Region

ANSD Northern Rivers Regional Group was launched in Rous Mill Community Hall, near Alstonville, in northern NSW, on July 29th2017.

The Northern Rivers ANSD Group meets 4 times a year for a reflection day usually on a Saturday between 9.00 and 2.30.

Our meetings integrate a contemplative dimension into the meetings with times of silence as well as communal time and a shared meal.

Morning tea is provided and BYO lunch to share.

Meeting Location: Rous Mill Hall, Rous Mill, near Alstonville.

All are welcome.

ANSD Northern Rivers Regional representative is Robyn Fitzgerald.
