Wallingford Quakers

Welcome to our Meeting

Our Meeting House is in Castle Street, close to Wallingford 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 have separate facilities for children. Refreshments are available following Meeting for Worship. All are welcome

We hold a shorter Meeting for Worship at the Northbourne Centre in Didcot every Wednesday afternoon.

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

The Meeting House and toilet facilities are suitable for some wheelchair users. A hearing loop is available.

Times of Meetings for Worship

Sundays at Wallingford Meeting House: 10:30 to 11:30
Wednesdays at the Northbourne Centre, Didcot: 16:00 to 16:45
