South Edinburgh Quaker Meeting

Coronavirus Covid-19

Due to Covid-19, Meetings for Worship in Scotland are being held online, in person or "blended", and arrangements may have to change quickly. You may want to contact the meeting to check the arrangements if you are visiting.

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

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

DURING COVID RESTRICTIONS - please see newsletter for details of how to attend remotely or in person. Download it from the right hand column, or at the foot of the page on a small screen. 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 [link is to Facebook page] 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.

Newsletter: Download our monthly Newsletter from the box to the right (at the foot of the page on a small screen). Contact neilturn [at] gmail.com to receive it electronically each month - this list is wider than the regular email list ...

Email list: Infrequent short-notice news, Zoom links for meetings, etc. Subscribe to the South Edinburgh Quaker email list here. Please enter your name when signing up, so that we can check we know you. Access the list via the same link if you are already a subscriber.
