More about Edgware Quaker Meeting

The origin of the present Meeting lies between the two World Wars. The Community Centre of Burnt Oak’s newly built Watling Estate hosted early meeting for worship. In the 1960s a small group that met at Stanmore joined the Burnt Oak group, combining to raise funds for today’s purpose-built, architect-designed meeting house situated in shyly central Rectory Lane in Edgware. There is no warden. Edgware station (Northern line) is five minutes walk away.  The meeting house has its own car park.

Edgware Quakers set up a Child Contact Centre where the children of divorced or separated parents can meet the non-custodial parent on neutral ground, for no charge. The Centre has been in existence for nearly twenty years. The only entirely voluntary contact centre in the country, it is affiliated to the National Association of Child Contact Centres. This meets every other Saturday morning but will stop on December 28th 2019.

Edgware meeting met for the last time in December 2018.
