Meetings for Worship
Our Meetings for Worship are public and anyone who wishes to attend is welcome. They are normally held in a meeting room in a Friends Meeting House on a Sunday, and are based on quiet worship and communion with God and with each other. Anyone present who feels moved to do so may speak, pray aloud, or read from the Bible or other writings. The spiritual depth of Quaker worship depends on the prayerful participation of everyone present.

“Junior Meeting” or “Sunday School” is a time when adult members of the Meeting take the young people for a variety of activities which may include:- reading, telling stories and discussing a wide range of topics of a religious or other nature, drawing, painting, handcraft, singing, short plays, etc. In accordance with modern practice, the Society of Friends has adopted a Child Protection Policy Document; this updated February 2007 edition is available in pdf format via the foregoing hotlink, and in print.
