Meetings

In 1996 our late friend Tony Back-Adams wrote: “Regular meetings for worship need to be planted in various parts of [the UK]. Most Friends in Christ live isolated from others, often separated by long distances. But meetings have grown from just one Friend sitting down to worship, and if only more were prepared to do just that, if only once monthly, great things could begin to happen for Jesus…”

Since then Meetings for worship have been held in various places. Often these have only lasted as long as there have been a couple of Friends in a given area, until people move on. But when any enquirer gets in touch and asks where the nearest meeting is we often say “At thy house”.

On this page we hope to keep readers up-to-date with such meetings for waiting worship in the name of Jesus Christ that we do know of.

All are welcome – the door is open to anyone who is willing to wait on the Lord. To request current dates, please use the contact form.

*We number the days of the week and the months of the year, rather than give them names derived from pre-Christian gods. “For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name” Hosea 2:17

CHRISTIAN FRIENDS in London

The meeting at Bunhill Friends Meeting House (off Banner Street, near Old Street station) has been suspended pro tem, while an alternative meeting place is sought.

‘QUAKERS IN EUROPE’ – ‘Skype Meeting’

Anyone with Skype on his or her computer is welcome to join friends for worship every First Day at 10:30am UK time. Just look for ‘Quakers in Europe’. Waiting worship together via the internet is a valuable way for isolated Friends to have fellowship. The Meeting’s web site is here.

MEET FOR WORSHIP IN YOUR HOMES

Often, when someone contacts us and asks “Where is my nearest meeting?”, we answer “At thy house!” – see above. It is often the case that a meeting for worship will first be planted by a single person retiring from the world to wait upon the Lord in his or her own house. Family and friends might be invited. From there, it is an easy step – if the Lord wills it and leads those people who meet together – to hire a public room and invite anyone who wishes to worship with them.
