Meeting for Worship - a time for quiet contemplation

Venue: The Quaker Meeting House, SY1 2NU

At Quaker meetings, there are no ministers or creeds. We first gather together in silence to quiet our minds – we don't have set hymns, prayers or sermons. In the stillness we open our hearts and lives to new insights and guidance. The meeting will begin in silence, and you are free to sit in silence for the entire meeting, or to stand up and share a message if you feel moved to do so. It is a time for stillness, contemplation and reflection.

Meetings for Worship are typically held on Sundays in Quaker meeting houses, but they can also be held on weekdays or in other locations. Anyone is welcome to attend a Meeting for Worship, regardless of their religious beliefs or background.

When you arrive at a Meeting for Worship, you will be greeted by a Friend and shown to a seat. There is no set order to a Meeting for Worship, and the meeting may be led by the Spirit in different ways. Sometimes there may be a lot of sharing, and other times there may be long periods of silence.

If you are new to Quaker Meeting for Worship, it is perfectly normal to feel a little self-conscious or unsure of what to do. Just relax and be yourself. There is no right or wrong way to worship in a Quaker Meeting.

The meeting ends with the traditional handshakes, then we share tea, coffee and biscuits. There is no charge for attending.

Light Group - Experiment with Light meditation

Venue: Shrewsbury Meeting house library

"Experiment with Light" is a simple but powerful meditation, which can be searching and transformative. It helps us to really know ourselves.  Some personal impressions about the Shrewsbury Experiment with Light meetings are here.

This is a Quaker discipline that helps people deepen their spiritual lives by trying out what it means to “wait in the Light” as early Quakers did, and still has great relevance today.

Please use our contact form to book - there is no charge.
