Folkestone: Meetings for Worship
Whilst prevented from meeting by Covid, Folkestone Friends have been doing several things:
Folkestone Friends agreed that, for the duration of the pandemic restrictions, they would try to set aside 10.30 – 11.00 every Sunday morning as a common time for worship in the silence of their own homes, without the use of technology, in the knowledge that others in Folkestone Meeting would, simultaneously, be doing the same.
Government regulations permitting, and when the weather has been clement, small numbers of Folkestone Friends have gathered for a Meeting for Worship, appropriately physically distanced, in the garden of one or other Friend.
Some Friends have been joining with others from across the Area Meeting on zoom. These meetings are on Sundays from 10:45-11:45 and Tuesdays from 8:20 – 9:00 and can be accessed by contacting Canterburyclerk@kentquakers.org.uk
Folkestone Quakers have begun making links with Ashford Meeting and are welcome to attend there in person. Details of meetings are here.
Premises unsuitable for a separate Children’s Meeting.
Meeting for Worship for Business
Meetings for Worship for Business are held when the need arises.
A discussion group is held monthly either immediately following a Meeting for Worship, or else at the home of one or other Friend. Details of discussion group meetings are announced by means of the Folkestone Meeting’s e-mail list.
