ZoomID 832 5021 1050
Every Tuesday at 19:00 there is an opportunity for Quakers across London to worship and talk together. We hope that this will build up the sense of a London-wide community of Friends, especially as we consider new ways of governing ourselves. We know that many Friends have become reasonably comfortable with online worship by now, so it seems a good time to use it to reach out across geographic distances. We will have a mixture of worship, a short conversation starter and some time in groups. You can join or leave after the worship.
When: Tuesdays, 19:00 to 20:30
Where: on Zoom of course (with a waiting room on entry)

Online Event: https://www.meetup.com/Quaker-Quest-London/events/
Since 2002 Quaker Quest at Friends House in London has been a way for people who want to know more about Quakers and their individual spiritual journeys to meet some Quakers in person and hear their stories. While Friends House is closed in the evenings and social distancing is advised, the Quaker Quest team would like to welcome you to online discussion and a sharing of views via Zoom. We hope that each evening will be driven by you and respond to what you want to know. Each main session lasts for an hour and is followed by a short 15-minute Meeting for Worship and the opportunity for informal chat. The best way to show interest is by replying through this Meetup link (so that we have an idea of numbers): https://www.meetup.com/Quaker-Quest-London/events/
