Welcome

Thought for the week

We are currently holding Meeting for Worship in the garden of the Meeting House. We can seat a maximum of 23 people and there is therefore a small possibility we may turn you away if we reach our maximum numbers. We ask visitors to the Meeting to email clerk@settlequakers.org.uk beforehand for safe joining instructions. Alternatively, we hope that Friends will “worship where they are” on Sundays from 10.30 to 11.15. For those who enjoy online meetings, there is also the option of using Zoom. Please contact Marian McNichol to join. In this way we hope to sustain together a strong worshipping Meeting. 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.Previous “Thoughts” can be found here. If you have suggestions for passages, please contact Sue Cariss.

A postscript to ‘the brethren of the north’ issued by a meeting of elders at Balby, 1656.

“Dearly beloved Friends, these things we do not lay upon you as a rule or form to walk by, but that all, with the measure of light which is pure and holy, may be guided; and so in the light walking and abiding, these may be fulfilled in the Spirit, not from the letter, for the letter killeth, but the Spirit give the life”.

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
