Coronavirus Guidance

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.

At Area Meeting level guidance is provided by the CEQ charity Trustees who are responsible for both health & safety and compliance with regulations.  Trustees have set up a small “C19 project team” to develop guidance for Local Meetings and Branches and to provide advice and practical support to Friends.  The guidance is evolving all the time, and Meetings will be receiving regular “Bulletins” together with new or revised supporting documents. 

The documents currently available are listed below:
