Henley Quakers

Welcome to our Meeting

Our Meeting House is on the north of Henley town centre.

On Sundays, about 20 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. We serve tea and coffee afterwards, except when we have a Business Meeting. On the 3rd Sunday each month, after Meeting for Worship, we usually have soup, bread and cheese followed by a discussion. All are welcome to come to a Meeting for Worship and stay for the lunch and discussion

We don’t have children attending our Meeting at present, but if you would like to bring children we should love them to come. Please let us know so we can provide suitable care or activities.

Details of Meetings for Worship and other upcoming events are in the calendar below.

The Meeting House and facilities are all accessible and there is a hearing loop in the main room.

From 13 September Henley Quakers resume our Sunday meetings for worship subject to Covid-19 restrictions. In order to attend our meetings, advance booking is essential. Please consult one of the elders for information about the new procedures, including the booking system. If you've rarely, or never, attended one of our meetings before, please get in touch using the Email (other enquiries) button on this page.

Sundays: 10:45 to 11:45
