More about Golders Green Quaker Meeting

Golders Green Meeting is one of the smaller Meetings within the Area Meeting.  This gives us an opportunity for a reflective spiritual base in the silence of our meetings for worship.  All are very welcome at our regular meeting for worship on Sundays at 11.00 am.

We invite you to enjoy the company and conversation after meeting. On fourth Sundays we have a ‘bring & share’ lunch before hearing the experience of Life & Faith of someone in the meeting or a speaker on an area of Quaker faith and work. It is always informal and there is no pressure to take part.

Elders arrange regular discussions about spiritual matters and recent discussions have included ‘Letting Go, Letting God’, ‘Resurrection’, and a series of workshops on the Quaker Testimonies; Truth and Integrity, Peace, Simplicity, Equality, and Sustainability.

Other local activities can be found on the Area Meeting website, and after the Sunday meeting, there will be further opportunities to find out what is going on within the local meeting.

The Meeting House was completed in 1913 as part of the first stage of Hampstead Garden Suburb. Henrietta Barnett’s experience of life in Whitechapel at Toynbee Hall provided her with the impetus to design a garden suburb where rich and poor would live as neighbours in a healthy environment. The garden entrance is part of the ancient wood of Middlesex, and the informal garden area of shrubs and flowers creates peaceful places to sit.

Neighbouring buildings are The Free Church, Henrietta Barnett School and the Lutyens designed St Jude’s Church.
