Area Meetings in 2018

Area Meetings

It is hoped that Friends will extend a warm welcome to children and young people at every meeting, making time for worship, activity and fun, both within their own programmes and with adults. Younger friends may express themselves through activities such as drawing, music, writing and playing. Where meetings have an extra room (most do) this will be dedicated to children and will always be available.  Most meetings also have a garden – all except Clun Valley and Ledbury.

Area Meetings are scheduled to finish by 4.00 p.m. followed by refreshments.

Friends whether in membership or not are most welcome.
