Final meeting at York Street Meeting House Sun 31 March

The final Sunday Meeting for Worship in the York Street Meeting House will be Sun 31 March. It will be shortened by half an hour so we can share any memories and feelings about the Meeting House and our move.

York Street is an architectural gem, with much good that can be said about it. But Bath Quakers feel our energies are better put into extending the life of our growing Meeting outwards than maintenance of an historic building however intriguing.

There will be cake, and a collection for Umm al Khair.

Leaving with a smile – the sun shines into the cupola of York Street Meeting House after Meeting for Worship Sunday 10 March

  • Reminder – as if we didn’t all have enough else to think about at that time – the clocks go forward Sunday 31 March.

Other points related to the move agreed at our Meeting for Worship for Business 10 March:

  • After successful trials, we move all Meetings to Bath Central United Reform Church from 1 April (Grove St entrance)
  • Trustees will handle the York Street property arrangements with professional advice and in accordance with charities law and guidance
  • Elders, clerks, doorkeepers and the overseer group will get keys to BCURC; Lin Paterson is distributing these
  • We’re disconnecting the Bath Quakers’ land line and moving to a mobile phone contact, with a rota of Friends taking the calls
  • our correspondence clerk Simon will update British Quakers and West Wilts area web sites and we’ll advertise the change of Meeting in The Friend
  • the web site is key point of contact. We will make our private Facebook group public and use it as  a noticeboard and pointer
  • We’ll use a portable notice board inside BCURC for our own notices, place a poster and an A2 “A board” outside and a “what’s on” notice in the Bath Chronicle.

See you all in BCURC (Grove St entrance)!
