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.


Meetings are normally held in the Small Hall at the rear of Scone Public Hall, Queen’s Road, Scone, PH2 6QJ, Scotland, at 11am for about an hour, on the 1st day of the week*, twice a month. All will be welcome – the door will be open to anyone who is willing to wait on the Lord. Please note that meetings have been suspended until 6th Month 2023 at the earliest, but continue online for now. Please use the contact form to ask for details.

*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

FRIENDS IN CHRIST, Saffron Walden, Essex

Meetings for waiting worship in the name of Jesus Christ have been held in the Catholic Church Hall, Castle Street, Saffron Walden, at 3.00 p.m. for about an hour, on the third 5th day of each month. For current arrangements, please use the contact form and your queries will be passed along.

‘MIDLAND QUAKERS’ – ‘Skype Meeting’

We currently have no news about this group, but will let you know when we have information.


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.
