East Garston Quakers
Welcome to our Meeting
Our Meeting House is in East Garston, a pretty village in the Berkshire downs.
On Sundays, about six people meet in Quaker worship. There is no programme or leader: anyone who feels called to speak may do so, but often Meetings for Worship are largely silent. After Meeting we have coffee and biscuits and a general chat. All are welcome.
Currently, there are no children in our Meeting, but they are very welcome. We have a separate room where children can go under supervision so they don’t have to attend the whole Meeting.
Details of Meetings for Worship and other upcoming events are in the calendar below
There is wheelchair access to the Meeting room, but we don’t have an accessible toilet.
