Welcome to our Meeting
We meet for Quaker worship on Sundays and Wednesdays. There is no programme or leader: anyone may speak if they feel called to do so, but often Meetings for worship are largely silent.
Meetings for worship have been held online since the start of the Covid-19 emergency. We are delighted that in-person Meetings have started again on Sundays, which are linked to the online Meeting.
New people are welcome to in-person meetings, but in order to comply with the Covid rules, we ask that you arrive a few minutes early so that doorkeepers can take your contact details for Test and Trace.
Full details of Meetings for Worship and other upcoming events are in the calendar below.
Our Meeting house is close to Reading’s busy town centre, and has wheelchair access throughout. There is a hearing loop in the main meeting room and an accessible toilet.
Times of Meetings for worship
Sundays: Blended Meeting for worship - in-person and online 10:30 to 11:30
Wednesday Lunchtime Meetings: currently suspended
Fridays at Reading University Chaplaincy Centre: currently suspended
Use the 'Contact us - other enquiries' email below for details of how to join both in-person and online meetings.
