Centrepoint is made by members for members. Our social events, vernissages, talks, tours, language conversation groups and activity groups reflect the interests and efforts of our members. All events and groups as well as the Library, the monthly magazine and Centrepoint itself are organised, run and staffed by our Members.

„Almost anything can be interesting if you dig deep enough. That’s why I agreed to take over as Talks Coordinator – and because nothing virtual can ever match the concentration and excitement of a live, in-person event.“

Bronwen, Talks Coordinator


„Centrepoint is the result of a unique vision and a dedicated team of volunteers. I am proud of what all of us, from the oldest to the newest members, have accomplished over the years. May our "home" in the beautiful Lohnhof continue to thrive as a place where everyone feels welcome, enjoys meeting people and has the urge to get involved.“
