Almeley Quakers continued to meet each week using Zoom. Whilst the intensity of seeing everyone’s faces, including our own, took some getting used to at first but we came to appreciate what it had to offer. Many logged on a few minutes early to say hello and have a quick catch up. We met in stillness and quiet at 10.45 for 60 minutes. Friends ministered (spoke) as before, when they felt moved to do so, and we took time to reflect on what we heard before any one else ministered. At 11.45 a Friend concluded the meeting and we moved to notices of upcoming events or news of general interest and then to social time.
None of us expected the restrictions imposed by Covid 19 to last so long.
We are aware that visitors to our site may wish to experience a Quaker Meeting and might even be happy to do so via Zoom. If this is the case please contact the Clerk for Almeley Meeting whose details can be found on the contacts page as even as we open the Meeting House Zoom meetings will run concurrently with Meeting in the Meeting House
