Almeley Quakers continued to meet each week using Zoom as well as Meeting in the Meeting House. Whilst the intensity of seeing everyone’s faces, including our own, took some getting used to at first we came to appreciate what it had to offer for those unable to attend the Meeting in person. Some log on a few minutes early to say hello and have a quick catch up. We meet in stillness and quiet at 10.45 for 60 minutes. Friends minister (speak) as before, when they feel moved to do so, and we take time to reflect on what we have heard before any one else ministers. At 11.45 a Friend concludes the Meeting and we move 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. Even as we open the Meeting House, Zoom Meetings are running concurrently with Meeting in the Meeting House
