South Edinburgh Quaker Meeting

Coronavirus Covid-19

Due to Covid-19, Meetings for Worship in Scotland may not be held in person. Many meetings are making alternative arrangements online. If there's no specific information below, please contact the meeting for information.

Meeting Place: The Open Door, 420 Morningside Road, Edinburgh EH10 5HY

Meeting for Worship: Sundays at 10.30 a.m. Children welcome

We offer a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us for worship on a Sunday morning. There are usually between twenty and thirty people present, plus a varying number of children and young people of all ages. After Meeting for Worship, which lasts one hour, we have coffee/tea and time to chat. The children's meeting is at the same time and they join the main meeting for the last ten minutes.

The Open Door is a friendly space at the top of Morningside Road, just opposite Morningside clock. Bus numbers 5, 11, 15, 16, 23 and 36 stop very close by ('Morningside Station' stop). On weekdays you can have coffee here, and it runs a number of regular services, particularly for the elderly. We are one of a number of other organisations that use it.
