Click here to join Sunday or Tuesday worship via Zoom

We cannot gather indoors to worship together in person at the moment (except for residents of the Keynsham Chocolate Quarter – see Regular Events below). Bath Quakers’ three weekly meetings for worship continue. Here’s how you can join in.

The simple, technology free, option is to settle quietly into worship wherever you are at the time of our Meetings knowing that other Friends are doing likewise.
 
On Sundays and Tuesdays you also have the option to join our online or phone meeting for worship. This enables us to hear and see each other and to share spoken ministry, news and conversations.

How to join an online/phone meeting

  • Online/phone meetings for worship will at the times listed above, followed by time for conversation.
  • Zoom login details and passcode do not routinely change. We send a reminder before each Meeting or event to Friends on the Bath Quaker email list.
  • Visitors are welcome! Please contact us to introduce yourself and ask for the online/phone meeting password.
It helps if you:
  • join the online/phone meeting 5-10 minutes before worship starts so that you have time to say ‘hello’ and familiarise yourself with Zoom
  • mute your microphone when you’re not speaking, to avoid background noise.
