Newcomers

Come to a Meeting or join us on-line for Meeting for Worship (please contact Chris Grove, our Correspondence Clerk, on 01243 839829 or email clerk@chichesterquakers.org.uk if you would like more information and the Zoom link details). Just join before 10.30 am on a Sunday, say you are a visitor and that this is your first time.

To Quakers, Worship simply means sitting quietly and leaving your mind as open as you can to the promptings of your deepest self. It is an opportunity to try to put aside current cares and contemplate what is really important to you  And if you find an hour too long feel free to leave when you have had enough.

After the hour’s worship there will be notices for the Meeting, then an opportunity for social chat.

We also have an on-line Meeting at 5 pm every Thursday for 45 minutes followed by social chat.  For more information contact Chris Grove on 01243 839829 or email clerk@chichesterquakers.org.uk

Outside of the pandemic, after a Meeting for Worship we have a drink and chat for a short time. You would be very welcome to stay for that when you could talk to us and ask any questions you may have.

Accessibility

The Meeting House is accessed by a short ramp. The wheelchair user may need assistance but Friends are always there to welcome and provide assistance. The foyer and Meeting Room on the Ground Floor are wheelchair accessible.

Our three toilets are gender neutral with one being more spacious, allowing for wheelchair access, personal assistance and baby changing and childcare facilities.

We have a hearing loop in the main Meeting Room for those who wear hearing aids and a number of Friends are happy to act as “Scribes” to share Ministry with the profoundly deaf on request.

We will always try to accommodate any specific requests that might help you to feel more included.
