Meetings for Worship: Sunday 10.30am - 11.30am.

Horfield Quaker Meeting is active and has a lively children’s group. It holds monthly shared lunches which are followed by social and learning opportunities. Quaker worship takes place mostly in silence when bodies and minds are stilled in order to be receptive to the love and guidance of God. Friends are glad to welcome the frequent newcomers who visit this meeting.

Friends from the meeting engage in a wide variety of work for peace and justice and support organisations that help the homeless, refugees, asylum seekers and newly-released prisoners with addiction issues. It promotes fair trade and encourages environmental awareness. The meeting actively supports the Bishopston Interchurch Group local projects.

There is a secluded garden at the rear which offers a peaceful place away from the bustle of the main road. The building is fully wheelchair accessible. The presence of a Resident Friend ensures that the building can be used at all times and on seven days a week.

There are many adult and kids groups that take place at the Meeting House, please see the ‘Groups, Club & Societies’ tab on this website.
