North Scotland Area Meeting

North Scotland Area Meeting (NSAM) brings together the local Meetings listed on the right (or below on a mobile screen). Click on the location names of each Meeting to find out when and where they meet and for contact details.  As well as Sunday Meetings for Worship, several local meetings are hosting on-line Meetings and discussion groups during the week. A North Scotland Meeting for Worship on Sundays is also hosted online at 10.30am for those who can not get to a Local Meeting.

Area Meetings (AMs) are primarily business meetings to sustain the Quaker communities in regional areas. Dates for 2024 are: 10 Feb 11am Aberdeen, 2nd April 7pm online, 18th May 11am Inverness, 30 Aug-1 Sept Pluscarden & 19 Oct 11am Aberdeen. For details of Area Meetings and the online Meeting for Worship on Sunday, please contact the piersvoysey50 [at] (AM Clerk).

Lat year we enjoyed a nourishing and creative AM at Pluscarden in August, with Friends of all ages (see minutes), but storm Babet prevented us meeting in Aberdeen in October and we reverted to meeting online (see minutes).

We have an associated publication North Scotland Quaker Note Book containing information and personal views of NSAM members and attenders.
