Welcome to the Centre For Pagan Studies

Doreen Valiente - Our Patron
Doreen Valiente Our Patron

Formed in 1995 by John and Julie Belham-Payne and based in an 18th Century barn in the grounds of their home in Sussex England. The Centre was put together as a resource facility for those wishing to learn for themselves, more about the ancient religions of the world. The C.F.P.S. did however provide accurate information in lecture form from a number of eminent speakers on a variety of Pagan (mostly historical) based themes. Doreen Valiente was our Patron.
