Meeting for Worship

Sun 10:30 – 11:15 via Zoom
 
Sun 10:30 – 11:30 in person at Manvers Street Baptist Church, near Bath station. There are no longer any requirements to wear a mask during our in-person Meetings for Worship, but of course, attendees can wear one if they wish. Hand sanitiser is available at the door. We assemble for coffee and chat after the Meeting for Worship in the church cafe upstairs.
Note that there will be no Meeting at Manvers St on Sunday 3rd July as we are holding our Meeting for Worship for Business on zoom after the usual zoom Meeting for Worship. 
 
Tues 18:00 – 18:30 via Zoom
 
Weds 10:30 – 11:00 (individuals meeting at home simultaneously)

How to join an online/phone meeting

  • Online/phone meetings for worship will be 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.

Outdoor Meeting for Worship

We arrange Meetings for Worship at Bath Quaker Burial Ground on occasional evenings in the warmer months. Email bathquakermeeting@gmail.com for further details.
