Welcome

Thought for the week

We are currently holding Meeting for Worship each Sunday on Zoom for 45 minutes starting at 10.30. Please goto the Online Meeting For Worship link on the website, or contact Marian McNichol to join this. Alternatively, we hope that Friends will “worship where they are” on Sundays from 10.30 to 11.15. 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.

What is God?

“Marilynne Robinson, the acclaimed American novelist,author of the newly published ‘Jack,’ and for whom science and religion sit side by side, when asked ‘what is her God, is it a rock?’ Answered ‘God has a big reality for me but that is not to say that it has definition, there are things that exceed language, God is one of those things, pre-eminently and utterly’”

Suggested by Anne Ogley.

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.

When permitted, there here 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
