Thought for the week

During this  unusual period of social isolation, we hope that Friends who are staying at home or are in hospital will worship where they are on Sundays from 10.30 to 11.30 and particularly hold in the Light all who are ill or frightened. In this way we hope to sustain a strong worshipping Meeting together. We hope to have a new “thought for the week” here each week, with the hope that it may be used as an aid to our “gathering” as a meeting each Sunday morning. If you have suggestions for passages, please contact Sue Cariss. We also have a group on the easy to use Telegram application. If you would like to join this, please contact John Asher.

Quaker Faith and Practice 24.60 (partial)

“What matters is living our lives in the power of love and not worrying too much about the results. In doing this the means become part of the end. Hence we lose the sense of helplessness and futility in the face of the world’s crushing problems. We also lose the cravings for success focussing on the goal to the exclusion of the way of getting there”

Wolf Mendel 1974

Around 30 people typically come to Sunday Meeting for Worship

Settle Quaker Meeting is an oasis for contemplation, meditation, and spiritual well-being. We want all who visit to leave feeling refreshed, inspired and at peace.

Quakers practice a religion of experience. It is a contemporary, simple, and radical faith.  Quakers are also called Friends.

There are two Quaker Meetings for Worship here each week. All are welcome.

Sunday 10.30 – 11.30 with Children’s Meeting | Tuesday 12.15 – 12.45

Outside these times the Meeting House and garden are usually open for quiet reflection.

You can find us at Friends Meeting House, Kirkgate, Settle BD24 9DX
