More about Friends House Quaker Meeting

friends-house-door-sept2016

Friends House is the central offices and the meeting place for Quakers from all over Britain. It is a busy and lively place throughout the week with a library, a cafe and a bookshop.

Details of our regular meetings and location are on this page.

On Sunday mornings there has been a Meeting for Worship here throughout the eighty years of the building’s existence.  We have over fifty members and many regular attenders who come from all over London. Children are welcome (contacting the clerk – using the form – in advance is a good idea for those planning to bring children). Many young people, particularly those working or studying in London for a time, make their way to the Sunday meeting.  The age range of the meeting is varied, but tends to be younger than at many meetings because of the student population.  We also welcome, Sunday by Sunday, visiting Quakers from all over the world, who greatly enrich the worship of the Meeting.

After Meeting for Worship, on the first Sunday of each month, there is a Newcomers’ Forum – a discussion group for people who may be new to the Society of Friends, or for those who are ‘finding their way’, or indeed more regular Friends.  On the fourth Sunday of the month, after Meeting for Worship, there is a regular gathering called ‘Aspects of Quakerism’, which discusses a different subject each month, often briefly introduced by someone with a special interest or knowledge.

There is also a Meeting for Worship on Thursday evenings in the Friends House Quaker Centre at 6.30pm. This is a small group often including newcomers some of whom have previously attended Quaker Quest, also held in the Quaker Centre on Monday evenings.
