Happy news!
Rosie Carnall is marrying Tim Relton this summer. As Tim is not a Quaker they have chosen to complete their legal marriage at the Town Hall. The wedding celebration will be a meeting for worship at Sheffield Quaker Meeting House at 1.30pm on Saturday 13th August, this will last for an hour and be followed by tea and cake afterwards. Rosie would be glad for Friends to come to this special meeting for worship. A children’s activity will be provided. It would be really helpful if you can say if you plan to come so we can be sure we’ll be ready to welcome the right number of children, and that there will be enough seats, and enough cake! We anticipate it will be a bit of a squeeze so please email Rosie ( to let her know you’ll be there.

Next month it’s August: please sign up for helping to clean the Meeting House over the summer.

We’ve had an email from the ecumenical Quiet Prayer Group of South Yorkshire (part of Churches Together) asking whether we would like to be part of a tour of a Flame of Hope around South Yorkshire from 5th August – holding silent vigils for local communities to bring their concerns to God about what is happening in the world and in this country, praying for hope and friendship. Does anyone want to take this up? The Clerks have more information.
