We are now planning for Meeting in person indoors, starting with a single Meeting from 10:30 – 11:30 am on Sunday 10th October in the Percy Hall at Bath Central URC. The Sunday morning Zoom Meeting will continue to be held at 10:30 am.

The Worshipping Group at the Keynsham Chocolate Quarter continues – see Regular Events below.

Our Sunday and Tuesday Zoom Meetings will continue, giving us the chance 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
  • don’t use the Zoom chat window during worship

If you find it hard to sit at a screen for the full length of Meeting, please join at the start and leave when you have to, perhaps by switching off your camera and ensuring your microphone is muted. You can then return for notices etc.

Meeting for Worship at Bath Quaker Burial Ground resumed in April 2021, when the Covid lockdown was eased. Meeting is held on alternate Thursdays from 18:30 – 19:15, until September. Email bathquakermeeting@gmail.com for further details.
