Directions, Transport and Parking:
The Meeting House is next to the Barn Theatre car park.

Train: Welwyn Garden City station, ⅔ mile (Great Northern services from London King's Cross, Peterborough and Cambridge)
The early Meeting is held at 8am (not 1st Sunday of the month), lasts for 45 minutes and is followed by a simple breakfast.
The 10.30am Meeting lasts for an hour, and is usually followed by coffee.
Both Meetings are times of silence, which for some might be an opportunity for thought or meditation, for others prayer. Into this silence from time to time someone may offer a reading or spoken ministry.
Children are welcome to attend our 10.30am meeting on the 3rd Sundays of the month. After the first 15 minutes they are taken out by two adults to a room where things of interest to their age group are explored. We do not indoctrinate, but hope that we can convey something of what Quakers believe, and how that affects our attitude to the world and the way we try to live our lives.
