Meeting for Worship is held every Sunday at 10.30 am for an hour, with tea and coffee afterwards. Everyone is welcome. There are arrangements for children.
Quaker Meetings, whether for worship or business affairs, depend on joint responsibility, as Quakers have no priests. Worship is based on silence, with some brief spoken contributions. Quakers believe that there is that of God in everyone, and this informs our work for peace, international reconciliation and social justice.
Besides the Sunday Meeting for Worship there are other public meetings, some arranged specially for enquirers and newcomers: see the Events page. Additionally, informal groups with special interests meet in the homes of members of the Meeting.
The Meeting House is three minutes walk from Blackheath Station. For Meeting House users on Sundays and in the evenings, parking is available along Independents Road. Parking on Lawn Terrace is very limited. The main meeting room has stepless access at pavement level from Lawn Terrace, and there is also stepless access to the lower floor from Independents Road.
The Meeting collects men's clothes and toiletries for the charity Deptford Reach, and food for asylum seekers (organised via LewCAS). These can be left at the Meeting House on Sunday mornings.
