About our Quakers Children’s Meeting
Every Sunday morning (on the first 4 Sundays of the month), our younger people attend our Children’s Meeting. This gives them an opportunity to explore Quaker beliefs and living in a context that suits their age. Normally on a Sunday, the Children’s Meeting will meet together with the main meeting for the first 5-10mins, and then move off to the Children’s Meeting returning to report back what activities they have done, and what they have learned.
The Children’s Meeting is such a central part of Westminster Quakers that we have a dedicated Children’s Workers alongside the many parents who help make it the vibrant and lively core of Westminster Quakers. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
