WELCOME TO

Winchmore Hill Quaker Meeting

Welcome to Winchmore Hill Quakers, and our website. We are the Quaker group for Enfield, and we welcome visitors from any background and anywhere across the world.

We have met in this beautiful meeting place for more than 350 years. Yet what we have to say is very up to date. We seek to be a friendly and open spiritual community, which welcomes everyone. If you are interested in finding out more, please get in touch via the contact page.

Meeting for Worship at the Meeting House is held twice each month, on the second and fourth Sundays at 10.30 am. It is once again open to anyone to attend, without invitations being required.  The large meeting room now has a maximum capacity of 23 people, or more if couples and households sit together.  If numbers occasionally exceed this limit, some people may be asked to sit in the small meeting room or to worship outside. Please see details of Health & Safety arrangements on the Events page. We welcome new people, and if you would like to join us in person or online please contact us via: whq.clerk@gmail.com  (or call 07549 352126).

There is also an on-line Meeting for Worship on the first Sunday of the month, also at 10.30 am.

We are not holding meetings for children and young people at present, but hope to start again soon.  (Of course children and young people can attend all or part of the main meeting.)

ROOMS FOR HIRE

There are also opportunities for online meeting for worship at various times through the week via Woodbrooke Quaker Studies Centre: www.woodbrooke.org.uk/about/online-mfw

Our gardens remain open to all to use as a place of tranquillity and reflection during daylight hours. Please observe the Government guidance on social distancing.

SAFETY. There are holes and uneven terrain in the grounds – please walk with care.   Please don’t enter the grounds during stormy weather! During a recent gale, a bough fell off our 150 year old cedar tree.

Our historic Friends Meeting House and grounds are an asset to the community. We provide an inspiring and practical venue for many groups and events. We welcome enquiries about hiring rooms when possible (via contact page or lettings page).
