Meeting for Worship

  

Quaker worship takes place when two or more people feel the need to be still together.

 

The Bridgend Meeting for Worship takes place every Sunday at 10.45am at the Friends’ Meeting House on Park Street.


There will always be someone at the door to welcome you, and the meeting starts once the first Friend is seated, and continues until 11.45, when it is terminated by the Elders shaking  hands. During this time, if anyone feels moved to  speak, then he or she is free to do so. However, sometimes the whole meeting in silence


Afterwards there is a few minutes of  ‘Afterthoughts’, a slightly less formal time (though still in an atmosphere of worship) where Friends may contribute thoughts and comments.


After that  there will be a few notices, and you will be invited to join us for a cup of tea or coffee! For those who find it difficult to attend the Sunday Meeting for Worship,  a mid-week Meeting is held on the second Tuesday in the month at 7.00 pm.

 

On the fifth Sunday of the month (if there is one), there is usually a shared lunch after the Meeting and this provides an opportunity to meet Friends in a socially relaxed atmosphere.
