Castle Douglas Quaker Meeting

Meeting for Worship

  • Sundays at 10.30 a.m. Normally children are welcome, but restrictions and our current premises mean we don't currently have space.
  • The Bowler's Hall is wheelchair accessible and parking is available on the street outside.
  • Hearing loop available, please ask.

We are a small meeting and very happy to try and answer any questions you may have about Quakers. 

We also have a Zoom Meeting for Worship every Wednesday. For further information contact the clerk, Penny Lilley, on 01556 504909 or pennylilley [at]

Meeting for worship during the Covid pandemic

As Covid is more prevalent just now we are assessing the situation week by week and may need to stop face to face meetings and have it entirely online. Please contact the clerk - details below, if Friends are unsure if Meeting for Worship is going ahead. 

Unfortunately, because the space is limited, we cannot provide a children’s meeting. Due to Covid restrictions we ask friends to bring a flask of tea/coffee for after Meeting for Worship. We adhere to all the Covid guidelines, social distancing etc and ask Friends to do a Lateral Flow Test prior to Meeting for Worship on Sunday.

Zoom meeting for worship

Our Zoom Meeting for Worship lasts 30 minutes. Afterwards we give time for contributing thoughts that did not feel right to say in the meeting itself. Then it’s time for a chat. You can leave at the end of the Meeting for Worship, or at any time.  

There's no charge to attend Quaker meetings. If you don’t already have it, the Zoom app is available online for free.  But if you are joining us by phone, unless you have inclusive calls, you may have to pay your telephone service provider for your phone call.   

Please telephone or email for information on how to join us, and any other questions.
