South London Quakers

Area contact

South London Area Quaker Meeting is part of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Britain. It consists of five neighbouring Quaker meetings in Central South London and North Surrey - Croydon, Epsom, Purley, Streatham & Brixton, and Sutton. All hold a meeting for worship every Sunday morning - some at their own meeting-houses, others in rented premises. They're open to everyone and you're welcome to take part without prior notice. Most have special arrangements for children.

Back in business - sort of
Normal-ish Meeting for Worship in Croydon has resumed after the long closure due to the coronavirus restrictions. We look forward to welcoming the brave ones back to worship in person. However, this looks and feels different from usual, and is taking place in the meeting room with space for just twelve people to give more space for social distancing. The Common Room is being used for overflow. Both rooms are connected to those worshipping online.
If you have not been to meeting in person under these revised conditions, please contact Gillian Turner on 020 8688 9659 or 07805 087 981.
To keep everyone safe and healthy we ask you to read these recommendations carefully.
You have a choice. Croydon and Sutton are both continuing to hold Meetings for Worship via Zoom. We try to make them as much like normal Sunday meeting as possible - arrive any time from 10:00, worship 10:30 to 11:30, then notices and chat afterwards - but you will have to supply your own refreshments!
Warning - passcode
Croydon Virtual Meeting House now requires a passcode to enter it but it is as a simple as we could make it:
