Event description

Description

Quaker week is celebrated each October with many local Meeting Houses holding events or marking the occasion in some way. Find out more information here.

At the Blue Idol this year we would like to invite you to come along to Meeting for Worship on Sunday 6th of October followed by a shared lunch and workshop. Anyone and everyone is always welcome at a Quaker Meeting.

Through 2019 we have held at least one event each month focusing on a Quaker value - Simplicity, Equality, Sustainability, Integrity, Peace and Hospitality. For Quaker week we will be holding a Meeting for Worship with the focus of reflecting on Quaker values.

If you are curious as to what a Quaker Meeting for Worship is like, this could be the perfect opportunity to explore.

Following the Meeting for Worship, we will have a shared lunch (bring a dish/ something to share) and then a workshop considering the way our values colour the way we all live our lives. How do yours express who you really are?

This will be a gentle day. You are welcome to come to all or part of it, with no obligation to stay for the whole time. Visitors are also welcome to come for just the workshop, there is no obligation to come for the Meeting for Worship as well. Blue Idol Friends will be here for Meeting for Worship and those who can will stay for the rest of the day too. If you have any questions please do visit our website to find out more and find our contact details: www.blueidol.org.

You do not need to book to come to this event, though using the Eventbrite booking system will help us prepare for how many people may attend. If you would like to let us know another way you can email admin@blueidol.org or call 01403 740174. You are also welcome to simply turn up on the day, as with any Quaker Meeting for Worship.

Simple suggested outline for the day:

  • 10.15am Arrive for the Meeting for Worship. Two Friends will welcome you outside and then you can make your way into the Meeting House for the meeting to begin around 10.30am.

  • 11.30am (approximately) Meeting for Worship ends. We will then have a chance to say hello and have coffee and tea.

  • 12.15pm Shared lunch - bring something to add to the table.

  • 1.30pm Workshop
