We are fortunate to have two Quaker meetings in Sheffield – a large central meeting (close to the cathedral) and a smaller meeting in Nether Edge. Both meetings have their main meeting for worship from 10.30 to 11.30 every Sunday. Further details, including meeting times, maps and public transport information are given on the Meetings page.
Please do not come to either Meeting if you, or someone you live with, has tested positive for Covid, or has Covid symptoms
Nether Edge Meeting meets in rented premises in Shirley House on Psalter Lane, with a typical attendance of 15 to 20. As well as meeting for worship it provides various opportunities to meet for reflection, study, outreach and social events. There are no longer any restrictions on attendance due to Coronavirus.
Sheffield Central Meeting is large (up to about 70 attending), normally with activities for all ages. To try and keep everyone safe during the pandemic, numbers are currently limited to 30 and it is necessary to book in advance, using Eventbrite from here. More details on the Meetings page. You can also attend the meeting remotely via Zoom – ask for details using our contact page.
These two meetings are strongly linked and their attenders share many of their activities, some of which can be seen on the News, Events, and About pages. At times, we have also offered several opportunities for Meditation, as a preparation for meeting for worship, or as another spiritual practice. However, at the present time, there is just a monthly group.
The two Sheffield Quaker meetings, together with Balby (Doncaster) Meeting and Hope Valley Meeting (which meets in Bamford at the Quaker Community) are grouped together as Sheffield and Balby Area Meeting which meets regularly as the co-ordinating meeting of Quakers in this area. [The original Balby meeting, one of the world’s oldest Quaker Meetings, dates back to around 1652.]
