Following government advice on dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak, we shall not be holding our Sunday meetings at Park Road until further notice. However, we are now holding virtual meetings instead using the Zoom app. The Sunday meeting is at 10.30am and we have started having a shorter meeting at 4.00pm on Thursdays. 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, if you would like to join us in this way.
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.
When we meet
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.) On the 4th Sunday in the month there is also a children’s meeting for 5 to 8 year olds: for other ages please contact us.
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.
