Frequently Asked Questions
What happens when I come to meeting?
You will be very welcome. If it is your first time at at Quaker meeting or just at Blackheath Meeting, let the person at the front door know when you arrive. He or she will help you and explain what happens in meeting. There are some leaflets available, too. We also suggest you look at this page - How Quakers worship.
What facilities are there for children and young people?
We have a parallel meeting for children and young people during Sunday worship. This begins at 10.30 am and is facilitated by two DBS-checked adults. The children join the full meeting for worship 5 minutes before the end. If you would like to bring children, it's helpful but not necessary if you can let us know in advance. See also our page on Children and Young People's Meeting
What facilities are there for disabled visitors?
The building is on two levels both of which are fully accessible but not between the levels. There are disabled toilets on both levels. It should be possible to park in Lawn Terrace with a disabled badge for using the upper level. At the lower level, there are two parking spaces. These need to be reserved in advance, so please contact us first on the email address at the bottom of the page.
Is there car/cycle parking?
For cars, on street parking is possible in Lawn Terrace and other streets nearby in the evening and on Sunday. Other times, there is paid parking at Blackheath Station, in the village and at the Post Office.
We have 3 Sheffield stands in front of the meeting house for bicycles.
Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately we can only welcome assistance dogs.
