Open hearts, open minds
Quakers try to live in truth, peace, simplicity and equality, finding God in ourselves and in those around us. Our meetings for worship offer a welcoming opportunity for spiritual exploration.
Special Notice – Britain Yearly Meeting’s All-together worship on Sunday 29 May 2022, 10:30 to 11:30am
Meetings for Worship effective from 1 May 2022
Sunday morning Meeting for Worship
We have a blended Meeting for Worship on Sunday mornings. This connects those worshipping online by Zoom with those in the Meeting House, where wearing a face mask is optional, although encouraged if Friends feel able to do so. If you’d like to join the online worship and haven’t done so far, please email the clerks for joining instructions. Also, Friends may choose to worship together in the garden if they wish, weather permitting.
Some Friends prefer to hold a time of silent worship individually at home, knowing that others are doing the same thing. We call this “Separate Togetherness” and the worship takes place at the same time as the blended meeting. Friends worshipping in this way sometimes join the online meeting at 11:30 for the informal chat that follows.
However you choose to join us, our meeting begins at 10.30 for one hour and all are most welcome.
Sunday evening Meeting for Worship
We hold a Sunday evening Meeting for Worship at 6.30pm. Wearing a face-mask is optional.
Mid-week Meeting for Worship
We hold a mid-week Meeting for Worship on Wednesdays at 12.30pm. Wearing a face-mask is optional.
The meeting house garden is available to everyone at any time, for private prayer and contemplation.
