Quaker Meetings are considering how and when to reopen for meeting for worship, in accordance with government guidance and advice from CEQ trustees and Britain Yearly Meeting. Some Quaker Meetings are reopening now or in the near future with measures in place, others may remain closed for some time. Please check directly with Meetings about when and how they plan to open, 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.
Join us for Meeting for Worship:
We meet for worship every Sunday at 10:30. The meeting closes at around 11.30 when two Friends shake hands. You are then very welcome to join us for tea, coffee and biscuits – also a good opportunity to find out more about Quakers. Everyone is welcome. Come with an open mind – you may already have a lot in common with us. Adjoining the meeting house is a community cafe that seeks to be of service to the local community.
Visit the Warwick Quakers website for more information.
At Warwick Children’s Meeting, we spend 45 minutes together and then join the main Meeting for our final 15 minutes. We enjoy a range of creative activities developing the children’s and young people’s understanding of the Quaker way. If you’re under 16, we’d love to see you at our welcoming and Friendly Meeting! Please contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Read more.

History of the Meeting House
When George Fox first visited Warwick in 1655, Quakers were meeting in their homes. The present site was bought from Edward Tustian in 1671. It had been used as a Quaker burial ground since 1660. A house stood on the site, thought to have been used as a meeting house, as in 1686 three Friends were appointed to have oversight of the repairing of the house.
The Great Fire of Warwick is thought to have begun to the south west of the present Meeting House on September 5th 1694. The wind blew the flames across the outbuildings and the Quaker House towards St Mary’s Church. Warwick Quakers immediately sought help from other Friends’ Meetings nearby to rebuild their Meeting House. The present building was completed in 1695.
