Thursday Evening Quaker Meeting

First Thursday of every May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December 8:00pm-9:00pm till 06 May 2021

Abingdon Quakers invite you to join us to experience a Quaker Meeting. Everyone is most welcome for these evenings, at 8pm on the 1st Thursday each month starting 4th April 2019, in the Sanctuary, St Ethelwold’s House, 30 East St Helen Street, Abingdon OX14 5EB (please note there is no step-free access to the Sanctuary). Each meeting will last about 40 minutes and will be followed by a time to talk. Come to one, two or all our gatherings! Contact Adrienne for more information on 07896 500683, or just turn up.

Please note that everyone is also most welcome at our regular Sunday Meeting, 10.15am every Sunday in the Health & Wellbeing Centre, Audlett Drive, OX14 3NJ, which has level access. 

Silence is valued by Quakers because it allows us for a while to be aware of the inner and deeper meaning of our lives.

Quaker worship happens when two or more people feel the need to be still together, expecting to feel the presence of God or whatever word you may use for a spirit greater than ourselves.

There is no set service or appointed minister, but an attentive waiting together in silence.  Anyone may feel the call to speak and share a thought, a prayer or a reading.

‘I found the evil weakening in me and the good raised up’ : Robert Barclay, late 17th century Quaker
