Children are very welcome at Quaker Meetings. They join the Meeting for Worship with the adults for part of the time but otherwise have their own activities. Currently, our children's group meets on the first and third Sunday of the month during school term time. Activities might involve arts and crafts, stories or plays, or games. The focus might be on ourselves, the world about us, caring for others, or aspects of the Quaker testimonies to simplicity, equality, truth and peace. Periodically an all-age Meeting for Worship might be held, based on a theme.
The meeting has a safeguarding policy and all members who are involved with the children regularly are DBS checked. Please let us know if you would like to bring children to Meeting so we can be ready to welcome them. For more information about bringing children to Meeting please read our Info for Parents and Carers.
Children’s activities are also run nationally at our national “Yearly Meeting”. Many teenagers enjoy attending national or regional residential events for young people. A Junior Yearly Meeting is held for 16 – 18 year olds.
