The cost for each meeting is a gold coin for members, $5 for non-members. We'd love to see you there.
How to get there
Sophia House is at 225 Cross Road Cumberland Park, adjacent to Cabra Dominican College, and ten minutes from the city centre by car or bus. Turn west (towards the sea, not the hills) from Goodwood Road. The carpark entrance is off Cross Road at the Sophia House sign. There's a walk from the carpark to Sophia House of about 50 metres – but you can also be dropped off at the door.
Buses from the city originate on King William Road (Bus 210, 216, 214, 218) and travel via Goodwood Road (to Flinders University, Panorama and Happy Valley). Alight at stop 9 and walk west along Cross Road. This is about 450 metres, so generally would be an issue for ME/CFS people. The Circle Line (Route 100) Stop 176 is about the closest you can get which is about 50 metres from Sophia's gate. Buses also travel from the city (Bus 296, 297) along East Avenue. Alight at stop 12, the Cross Road intersection, and walk east to Sophia.
Please wear warm comfortable loose fitting clothing and you may like to bring a rug or cushion. You can sit in a chair or on a cushion or lie on a carpeted floor if unwell.
Many people with ME/CFS are extremely chemically sensitive, so we ask attendees to refrain from wearing aftershaves, perfumes etc, and please refrain from smoking at our meetings. We will make every effort to clear the venue of fragrances and chemicals. There have been MCS issues there in the past and we have been in contact with Sofia's management to find ways to minimise or remove any potential issues for future meetings. We will continue to make every effort we can to minimise these problems at our meetings.
Please note that this program is subject to change.
