Meeting for Worship

Meeting for Worship

Meeting for Worship is central to Quakers.  As we meet together in silent worship we become aware of the 'still small voice' within each one of us.  So the whole Meeting is led into an experience of God.  As we are drawn together in fellowship, one or other may feel called to share some helpful thought that arises from within them, or to say a prayer or read from the Bible or other writings.

The Meeting for Worship usually lasts an hour and begins when the first Friends enter the meeting room.  The Meeting ends when two elders shake hands.  The Clerk, who is responsible for administrative matters connected with the Meeting, then reads out notices. These reflect the wide range of interests and activities that Friends are involved in, both nationally and locally as well as Friends and attenders
