Meeting for Worship

Worship is at the heart of what it means to be a Quaker. Meeting for Worship brings us together in silence and spoken ministry so we can still our minds and open our hearts and lives to new insights and guidance. Meeting for Worship at Brentford and Isleworth Quakers Meeting usually lasts for an hour and takes place every Sunday morning from 10:30  – 11:30.

 

Everyone is welcome to attend.

 

“Worship is our response to an awareness of God. We can worship alone, but when we join with others in expectant waiting we may discover a deeper sense of God’s presence. We seek a gathered stillness in our Meetings for Worship so that all may feel the power of God’s love drawing us together and leading us.” ~ Advices and Queries, number 8.

 

Children's Meeting

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 this document 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.
