Established in September 1989 the Medway Hindu Sabha (MHS) was created to advance the understanding of Hindu Religion and to advance public education in Hindu culture and philosophy. Founded by respected community members the centre still carries forward its positive community messages and tireless work by attracting people from all ages and faiths. In fact the MHS remains to be only one of few Hindu community centres in Kent.
Today the MHS is going through a resurgence of activity, especially from the energy of new volunteers and the support of local business. MHS aims to provide a spectrum of activities, events, and education for all members of the community. Recent initiatives have included the setting up of MHS Youth Club, MHS Football Club, Charitable social events, IT classes for elderly, and traditional music & dance classes.
However this is only possible with the support of the all the community members, and we always welcome new members to join the team.
As per the MHS constitution our objectives also include:
a) Provide center’s in Kent for religious functions and the performing of all cultures and religious functions connected with births, marriage and deaths.
b) Arrange lectures, discussions and other similar activities for the advancement of the Hindu Culture.
c) Provide means for the understanding and discussions of the concepts of the various schools of Hindu Philosophy and the basic values of the Hindu way of life.
