Meetings are notified to all those we have email addresses for approximately one week prior to the meeting. This notification includes details of any speaker.
In addition, we publish details of each meeting in the Blue Mountains Gazette and Western Weekender.
Future of our Face to Face Meetings
While a Zoom meeting is not the same as the personal contact within a face to face meeting it is a very good substitute and is easy to navigate even for someone with very limited computer skills.
If you would like to participate in the virtual meeting and have not already downloaded Zoom please send me an email – email@example.com – so that I can issue an invitation to you to join a meeting with me so that I can help you with the Zoom download and setup.
NOTE: there is no cost in downloading Zoom or using it as an invited guest.
If you have already downloaded Zoom and would like to participate then send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org – so that I can issue a meeting invitation to you.
I encourage you to try Zoom at least once as I have found, as have many others, that Zoom works very well indeed.
If you have not been an invitee to a previous Zoom meeting please send me your email and I will put you on the invite list – email@example.com
It is pointed out that with regards to joining “ZOOM” meetings, you only have to email David once to get your name on his meeting list. After that, on the night of the meeting, he will automatically send you an email inviting you to log in. You do have to have downloaded the free ‘ZOOM’ program (again only a ‘one off’)

Meetings via Video Conferencing
Currently our Monthly Member’s Meetings are held using the Zoom Video Conferencing System.
This is a direct consequence of the government rules issued because of the COVID-19 virus.
To join a Zoom meeting simply email firstname.lastname@example.org on the meeting day or a day or two prior. You will receive an email sometime after 6.00pm om the day of the meeting with the link to the Zoom meeting.
There is an unintended consequence of using Zoom in that we have been able to source speakers from all over Australia. Recent examples are speakers from Melbourne and Perth.
Prior to COVID-19 we met in the Anglican Church Hall, 254 High Street Penrith. Meetings were held every 3rd Monday of the month starting at 6.30pm. We will return to these meetings as soon as we are able within the COVID-19 rules and when the Church Wardens permit.
Planned Meeting Dates
(when physical meetings are resumed)
Meetings are held every 3rd Monday of the month at 6:30 PM (unless circumstances change)
St Stephen’s Anglican Church Hall,
254 High Street
Entry via High Street to the left of the church building, exit is via the right of the church building.
There is also a secondary entry and exit via Fulton Street at the rear of the church site between the Office and Rectory.
All meetings are available to males and their partners who are seeking information on this cancer, and who live in the Blacktown, Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury and Penrith areas. Come along and experience the caring and benefits offered by our Support Group whose motto is YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Usually, we have a guest speaker, followed by light refreshments however, although guest speakers usually speak for only half an hour the questions and answers generally sometimes go for longer than the talk.
