Glasgow Quaker Meeting
Due to Covid-19, Meetings for Worship in Scotland may not be meeting in person. Meetings may be making alternative arrangements online. Please contact the meeting for information. See the advice given to Quaker Meetings for more details.
Glasgow Quaker Meeting House closure (due to COVID-19)
Meetings for Worship are being held by Zoom on Sundays at 11.00am and Wednesdays at 12.30pm. For details of the links, contact the lm [at] aquarius1000.plus.com. We hope to be able to re-open the Meeting House for Meetings for Worship in person on Sundays at 11.00 a.m., starting on a trial basis in September. People wishing to explore Quaker worship are welcome to book a place at this meeting for worship; please contact glasgowquakers [at] yahoo.com . You will be asked for your contact details to allow tracing if necessary.
If you would like to join us but are new to Friends, a leaflet entitled Your first time at Quaker Meeting can be downloaded as a PDF file from the Quakers in Britain website.
We are a large Meeting, as Quaker Meetings go, with around fifty to seventy people of all ages.
Our Meetings are open to all and we offer a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us for worship every Sunday morning at 11 am.
Meeting for Worship Times
Please see notice above.
We also have rooms for hire to organisations whose aims are in sympathy with Quaker views, but these are currently unavailable due to the closure of the meeting House.

Outreach from Glasgow Quaker Meeting
Members of the Meeting work with refugees, asylum seekers, the homeless, at food banks and in prison. Others are involved in community building and interfaith activities. There are also regular walking groups, shared meals and occasional other social events.
There are five YouTube videos available, describing examples of Quaker outreach by members of Glasgow Meeting:

Glasgow Meeting also has the following social media pages:
The Facebook page is for all Members, Attenders and friends of Glasgow Quakers, or anyone seeking Quakers in Glasgow.
It is for sharing up to date information about events, Quakerly discussion and for reaching out to the wider community; for floating new ideas, and for being creative.
Younger Friends also have their own Facebook at Glasgow Young Quakers. It is a group for young adult Quakers (and Quaker-adjacent folks) in and around Glasgow. Young is loosely defined: under 35ish.
The Quaker Forum is now closed.
