Welcome to Bridgend Quakers
The Religious Society of Friends
Whether you are an enquirer, a student or a Friend, a very warm welcome to our website, and we hope that you find the information you are seeking about us here.
At Bridgend we are a community of about 25 Friends as we call ourselves. Usually, we meet at our Friends Meeting House at 87 Park Street. Covid 19, like everything else, has rather changed things for us, and now we hold blended meetings when possible. You can find further details under the Bridgend Quaker Meetings section.
We share worship together, we have regular study groups which can vary from reflecting on spiritual topics to wellbeing, or thinking about the economy. Above all we try to support each other. This has been especially important at this very difficult time. Some Friends attend regularly, other people will drop in as they need and this is absolutely fine. During the week Bridgend Carers rent two rooms as their centre and they are a very valuable and necessary lifeline to those who are supporting others.
Above all we would like you to know that if you want to try us out you will be very welcome and have no pressure put on you. Coming to a meeting for the first time might feel intimidating. Some Friends have been Quakers for many years, others have joined more recently having arrived one Sunday and decided to stay. If you feel that it might be a little daunting just contact us, and we will arrange for one of us to help.
If you would like to get in touch, you can contact our Clerk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone on 01656 768910.
Bridgend Quakers say, "Black Lives Matter", "Bod Bywydau Duon o Bwys".
