Newbury Quakers

Welcome to our Meeting

Our Meeting House is very close to Newbury town centre.

On Sundays, about 20 people meet for Quaker worship. If you arrive early we have a pleasant garden in which to spend time. We always welcome visitors and invite them, if they wish, to introduce themselves to the gathered Meeting. Our Meetings for Worship are, in the main, silent, but anyone may speak as the Spirit moves them.

We always have refreshments and a chat after the Meeting, when you can find out about our mid-week discussion group, our library, our garden and our activities on behalf of the local community.

We don’t have children attending the 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 activities.

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

The Meeting House is wheelchair friendly, with an accessible toilet.

Times of Meetings for Worship
