South Edinburgh Quaker Meeting

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 at the Open Door. There are usually between twenty and thirty people present. After Meeting for Worship, which lasts one hour, we have coffee/tea and time to chat.

We are always delighted to welcome children. Details of children's activities.

There is a Zoom 'hybrid' option for anyone not able to attend in person. Details in the newsletter, or join the email list (below) to receive week by week updates.

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. More at The Open Door on Facebook.
