Children’s meeting

I’m Sara and I will be the new Children’s Worker from July 2022. Children’s Meeting will happen on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. Specifically in July – Sun 10th and Sun 24th. We are always on the lookout for new children/families, so please contact me if you know of any who would like to join us

My role is to offer enjoyable art/craft/food/play activities joyfully grounded in the Quaker Testimonies of equality, peace, simplicity, truth and environmental concern. A warm welcome for newcomers and regulars alike.


We feel very fortunate in Lewes because we have had a happy, active and thriving children’s meeting for many years. Our children and parents are a much valued part of our community. We try to demonstrate Quaker values of loving and caring for one another in everything we do, rather than to try and impose a set of beliefs. We aim to make children’s meeting an enjoyable experience and to help older children to explore spiritual and social issues for themselves. We offer a variety of activities such as crafts, drama, co-operative games and gardening.

It is our custom to bring children into meeting for worship for about the last 10 minutes. To help children to sit quietly we encourage them to bring books or quiet toys into the meeting. Over time children become accustomed to spending quiet time in meeting for worship.

You are welcome to bring your children to any meeting for worship on a Sunday morning. Or you might prefer to find out more information before bringing your children. The attached leaflet might answer some of your questions, or fill out our Enquiry Form on this website and someone will get in touch with you to discuss your needs.
