As Covid restrictions continue to evolve, Quaker Meetings are considering if, how and when to offer meeting for worship and other services, in accordance with government guidance and advice from CEQ trustees and Britain Yearly Meeting. Please check directly with Meetings before travelling.

Some Quaker Meetings may continue to hold remote meeting for worship, please check with individual Meetings for details. Woodbrooke are offering online meeting for worship, which anyone is welcome to join.
