About this online meeting for worship:
Some Friends attend this evening meeting often or occasionally in addition to their own local worship held at another time, while for others this is their only opportunity to worship in community. It's therefore a unique and well-attended occasion when Friends across South Wales join together in worship. Everyone is welcome.
The meeting is open to join after 6:45. We settle into silence just before 7 to enable worship to begin in stillness. During the first 10-15 minutes or so a Friend will offer as ministry a short reading they have chosen, which might be a passage from Quaker faith & practice, or it could be something else. Anyone can offer to bring the reading for a particular Sunday: email to agree a date. What you read is up to you – to choose in advance or decide in the moment.
We share the eldership between us, members and attenders alike, with one Friend each week serving as the elder for that meeting. At 7.30 the elder draws worship to a close and invites us to move into a period of ‘Afterword’, when we hold the stillness – for as long as feels right – for anyone to offer a thought that arose for them in worship, or to respond to the reading or other ministry. Afterword tends to develop naturally into conversation after 15 minutes or so, and the meeting usually closes at around 8pm, but people leave when they are ready.
We look forward to seeing you at meeting for worship.
