London Friends Together

London Friends Together

 This is a weekly opportunity for Quakers across London to worship and talk together. Meetings are every Tuesday starting at 1900 – though the Zoom room will be open at about 1845 for chat. 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 will have half an hour of worship, then a short conversation starter (from a different Friend each week), half an hour in small groups, and we’ll end with some worship sharing.  You don’t have to attend all of it – you can join or leave after the worship.  Please try to hear the conversation starter (starts about 19:35 and typically lasts for 4-5 minutes) which provides input for the break-out rooms and following worship sharing.
