Elders have today written to Bath Quakers as follows:
In accordance with the latest public health advice Bath Quakers will not be holding meetings for worship in person for the foreseeable future: this means that our Tues, Weds and Sunday meetings are cancelled.While we can’t meet in person, there’s still lots we can do as a community:
• You might like to worship from home at the usual time of our meetings, holding friends in the Light.
• We are looking into the possibility of holding online meetings for worship. We’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, Woodbrooke already operate 4 online meetings for worship per week which are open to all, see: https://www.woodbrooke.org.uk/about/online-mfw/
• If you’re feeling isolated, do reach out.
• And as ever, do think of phoning someone who might be missing fellowship.
There’s also a new Bath Quakers WhatsApp group for fellowship now up and running. Contact us for details (or just connect to me on WhatsApp and I can add you to the group) – William Heath
