Meetings For Worship

At this time of the Corona Virus pandemic in the UK all our Meetings for Worship and other events are subject to government guidance. The Quaker community continues to be caring, supportive and worshipful.

For up to date information see the most recent edition of The Announcer on our Events page, or please contact our Clerk or use 07949 972159.

From Sunday 19th December there will be no Meeting for Worship at  the Meeting House. Bedford is in Tier 4 and clerks have taken the decision to keep Friends safe during this spike in the pandemic. This closure includes Christmas day.

Our Sunday Meeting for Worship can be accessed on-line. You can connect from 10.15am for the Worship which starts at 10.30 – 11.30 every Sunday:

A Memorial Meeting for Worship for Margaret Gardner was held on Saturday 20th 10.30 to 11.30. The presence of so many family and friends was much appreciated.

When Government advice allows us to resume meeting together in person we warmly invite you to join us in worship at:

How to Find Us.

Sundays 10.30 – 11.30 am.

Thursdays 12.30 – 1 pm, followed by a simple lunch.

Until we can meet together in person there is now a zoom Meeting for Worship (MfW) on Thursday.

Topic: My Meeting
Time: Thursday 12:15 pm

Join Zoom Meeting                                                                                   

Meeting ID: 890 4884 4344  Passcode: 744479

Thursday Zoom link will open at 12.15pm and the MfW will start at 12.30. No one will be admitted after 12.33pm. MfW will end at 1.00pm and you are then welcome to stay for a chat and lunch (provided by yourself!). If you have missed MfW you are welcome to join us at 1.00pm.

All are welcome to these Meetings for Worship on Sundays and Thursdays. Our worship is based on silent, expectant waiting upon God, broken by occasional spoken ministry or prayer from anyone present who feels moved by the Spirit to share something from this waiting and listening.

We welcome children and young people as a valued part of our community.
