All are welcome to join us for worship each Sunday at 10:30 am. There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering in the Meeting House but NHS guidance still recommends that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet, and anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask is more than welcome to do so.
If you attend the Meeting House, note that windows are open for ventilation so you may need to bring extra layers to wear. If you are feeling unwell, have been in contact with anyone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19, or have not yet been fully vaccinated, we ask that you join our meeting for worship via Zoom.
If you would like any further information, including how to join us on Zoom, please contact us by email (see address at the bottom of this page), or via the “Send us a message” form on the Contact Us page.
Friends have been coming together at our Friends Meeting House in Park Road for many years. We are an informal, cohesive and open spiritual community. Friends attending our meeting have diverse ways of looking at Truth, having been inspired by Christian, Humanist, Buddhist and various other perspectives. We believe that the whole of life is precious and endeavour to live out this faith in strong concerns for truth, peace, social justice, simplicity and the future of our planet.
We meet every Sunday at 10:30am for an hour of silent worship, followed by tea/coffee and biscuits. (For more information about what goes on, see under Newcomers.) We are not currently running a children’s meeting but please contact us to see what we can arrange.
We meet once a month on a Monday evening (usually the second Monday of the month) for a study and discussion session. Very often this is based around a short reading from Quaker Faith and Practice, our “book of discipline”, which is largely composed of extracts from Friends’ writings and attempts to express the breadth of Quaker theology and experience. All are welcome to attend, but please contact us first to check dates.
For other meetings and events, please see our events calendar.
The Meeting House has a hearing loop, wheelchair access and a wheelchair accessible toilet. There is some room for parking at the front. Please contact us for further information.
