Local Children & Young People Meetings

Rejoice in the presence of children and young people in your meeting and recognise the gifts they bring.

Advice and Queries 19

Many London Quaker local meetings run children and young people’s meetings. This can look a little different from meeting to meeting, but rest assured we do not expect children to sit perfectly still and quiet for an hour! Instead, they will enjoy games, crafts, walks and many other fun activities that teach them about Quaker values and practices. Other themes can include interfaith education, environmentalism, and pacifism. Children and young people will usually join the adults for a few minutes of silent worship at the end of meeting.

If you are curious about attending a Quaker meeting with your children and want more information you can contact Julia Stacey, the London Children & Youth Development Worker. You may also contact individual meetings about their children and young people offerings, through finding their contact information under the Find a Meeting tab.
