In Swindon, we meet for worship in the Meeting House at 10.30 on Sunday mornings.
There is no prearranged service or appointed minister, instead we gather in silence. This is an opportunity for reflection, but also for deep listening, in the expectation that we may experience the presence of God. Sometimes, from out of the stillness, someone will be inspired to stand and speak: they may speak from their own experience, or offer a reading or a prayer.
We welcome visitors to join us in Meeting for Worship.
Projects Swindon Friends Support
Swindon Meeting has for many years had a close association with a project in the town providing a drop-in venue for displaced people. Friends have acted as trustees, volunteers, and informally befriended individuals where a connection has been made. A year ago, Swindon Quakers developed the connection further by inviting refugees to a Saturday afternoon in a members' home, for tea and conversation. The event has become a regular monthly gathering enjoyed by all. Numbers have increased to the extent that it is no longer possible to host in our own homes, so we host in the meeting house, offering transport for families and people who live too far from the centre. "It is a very simple way to extend the hand of friendship, understanding and support. It can make such a difference." Christine Morgan, Swindon Meeting.
