Broadstairs: Meetings for Worship

Coronavirus

Due to UK government restrictions in response to the ongoing corona virus outbreak, in-person Quaker Meetings for Worship at Broadstairs Friends Meeting House are currently suspended.

Over the period of the corona virus epidemic, Broadstairs Friends have been doing several things:

When UK government regulations have permitted, Broadstairs Friends have gathered for an in-person Meeting for Worship, appropriately physically distanced and with proper regard to hygiene, in Broadstairs Friends Meeting House. 

At other times, some Broadstairs Friends have been sitting quietly at home at the time of their usual Meeting for Worship.

Online Meetings for Worship have also been taking place. These online Meetings for Worship are specific to Broadstairs Meeting, and start at 10:30 on Sundays. For details, please contact the Clerk: broadstairsclerk@kentquakers.org.uk

Broadstairs Friends hold occasional, informal online ‘coffee mornings’.

Additionally, online Meetings for Worship are held for the entire Quaker community across East Kent. If you are a Friend, including from another Area Meeting, and wish to attend an online East Kent Area Meeting (EKAM) Meeting for Worship, you are encouraged to contact the EKAM Web Manager for an invitation. These online Meetings for Worship take place at 10:45 on Sundays, at 08:20 on Tuesdays, at 21:00 on Wednesdays and at 12:30 on Thursdays.

If, as a member of the general public, you would like to learn more about Quakers, you would be very welcome to attend an online Meeting for Enquirers. Woodbrooke Study Centre hosts 11 online Meetings for Worship each week. Members of the public are encouraged to visit the relevant page of the Woodbrooke Study Centre website for details about how to attend. Should you find that the Quaker way of worship suits you, then attending a local online Meeting for Enquirers may be an excellent route into greater involvement and participation.
