Welcome to Peterborough Quakers

 

The Meeting House remains closed.

The Garden may be visited.

Please see below.

 

What do Quakers say?

 

There is something sacred in all people.

 

All people are equal before God.

 

Religion is about the whole of life.

 

In stillness we find a deeper sense of God's presence.

 

True religion leads to respect for the earth and all life upon it.

 

Each person is unique, precious, a child of God.

COVID 19 (Coronavirus) Updated 19/10/2020

 

Peterborough Meeting House remains closed but the garden is open.

 

The nature of Quaker worship makes it inadvisable for too many of us to gather in person whilst Peterborough is on the Government’s watchlist as an Area of Concern. Very limited numbers do meet each Sunday as we explore the expansion of Zoom into the Meeting House. If you would like to be alerted once a date has been confirmed for return to 'normal' or have any other questions please do email / call the Clerk to the Meeting with your details.

 

In the meantime we are meeting for Worship via Zoom (Not the Children & Young Peoples' Meeting). If you would be interested in joining us online or have any questions regarding facilities for children and young people, please do get in touch with our Clerk to the Meeting.

 

The challenges of the pandemic and changes to the availability of staff and members/volunteers have made it necessary to review and simplify how we use and run the Meeting House.  A new vision is gradually emerging but it will take a while to finalise and it is likely to be somewhat different from our current way of running things. Consequently no room bookings will be accepted for the foreseeable future

 

You are very welcome to enjoy the peace and solitude of our Garden but for everyone's safety please maintain social distancing and restrict groups to no more than 6 people from different households.

 

Coffee & Company has resumed on Wednesday mornings in a limited way in the garden so is subject to the weather conditions. If you wish to attend please contact the Clerk to the Meeting.

 

For the contacts mentioned above you will find details under CONTACT US
