Central England Quakers has just published an 80 page booklet based on the recent national Quaker meeting house heritage survey undertaken by BYM and Historic England.
The national heritage survey made a detailed assessment of the heritage value of each meeting house identifying its heritage significance and why it should be treasured and appreciated.
The booklet provides an overview of the heritage significance of each of the fifteen Central England meeting houses.
The booklet also explains how Central England Quakers are improving the sustainability of their meeting houses, putting them to community use and improving their accessibility; thus demonstrating the Quaker ideals of simplicity, good environmental stewardship and community service
The booklet includes a time line that links the meeting houses to Quaker history and a section on Central England Quakers in 2017
The booklet has outreach potential as well as heritage and church history interest.
Meeting Houses of Central England Quakers – Heritage Survey can be viewed online, and physical copies will be available at Peace Hub, Area Meeting, and from the Quaker Bookshop at Yearly Meeting Gathering.
