Wallingford Quakers Development Appeal

Why the development appeal?

Quakers have contributed to the spiritual and community life of the historic South Oxfordshire town of Wallingford for three centuries.

Our Grade II* listed Meeting House was built in 1724. To mark our 300th anniversary, we plan to develop it into a more accessible, user-friendly space for Quakers and the local community. We have launched a development appeal to raise the £400,000 needed to do this, and have raised £185,200 to date.

Please consider giving to our appeal. We value all gifts large or small. To donate online go to:

Wallingford Meeting Room

What are the current problems?

  • Our existing Meeting House consists of a single room with no other space for Quaker and community activities.
  • The kitchenette and toilet are in outbuildings and are not suitable for wheelchair users.
  • The Meeting room is a historic architectural gem, but it is very cold and damp.

We propose

  • To build a Hall equipped for a range of activities and all ages, including children.
  • To provide accessible toilets, a kitchen area and easy access to the surrounding garden.
  • To upgrade the Meeting room to improve comfort and reduce heat loss.


What are the benefits?

  • We will have modern facilities for Quakers and wider community use. These will be suitable for a wide variety of reflective, caring and creative activities.
  • The historic Meeting room will be preserved for the future and can be used more fully.
