See new information below listed in red.
To maintain the safety of worshippers, we shall adopt the following guidelines and government mandates for Sunday Meeting for Worship from the 8th of August 2020.
Only the Meeting House and the disabled loo will be open.
Both doors to the Meeting House will be made accessible to allow for one-way movement into and out of the Meeting House.
Only seats allowing a 2-metre distance will be available to sit on.
The chairs and benches to be used will be indicated with a ribbon.
The windows and /or outer door will be left open during MfW.
A doorkeeper will stand outside the building and remind arriving worshippers of the new measures in place, including drawing your attention to the QR code displayed on the wall for you to scan with your mobile phone if it is enabled to use this feature. Should you not have the track and trace capability on your mobile phone, we will also be keeping a record of anyone attending the Meeting and will need your name and contact details to facilitate the NHS Track and Trace measures should the need arise.
Everyone arriving will be asked to sanitize their hands before entering the Meeting Room.
Only one person at a time will enter the Meeting Room and worshippers will be asked to start by taking up the seats furthest from the entry door.
All surfaces liable to be touched will be cleaned before and after MfW each week unless suitable time has passed between meetings to deactive the virus naturally.
Masks to be worn for the safety of others.
Some Friends may hold Meeting for Worship in the Garden if the weather is nice, so no masks needed there.

Collection for October:
Brant Broughton Meeting House
The September collection was for the Newark Emmaus Trust.
An oversight meant it was not included here in a timely manner. More information about this charity is available below:
Welcome to the Brant Broughton Quaker meeting website.
Our meeting is centered on our Meeting House in the village of Brant Broughton, Lincolnshire and serves a wide area with many Quakers (Friends) living in the Sleaford, Newark and Grantham areas. We have grown so much in recent years that a group of us based nearer Newark have formed a new Meeting. Please press below to visit the Newark Quaker Meeting website.
We meet every Sunday at 10:30am and every third Thursday at 7:30pm for our shared silence in the Quaker tradition and all are welcome to join us.
No need for an introduction * just come along or if you would like to talk to someone first then please phone the number listed at the bottom of this page.
We're a friendly group and a warm welcome is guaranteed.
* Due to the continuing situation with the CV-19 virus, please phone the number at the bottom of the page to register your interest if you would like to visit for Meeting for Worship.

Follow this link to a collection of reflections from our local community of what it means to them to be a Quaker.
A small group of us are still holding a Meeting for Worship on Zoom and finding that the comfort and support of seeing the faces of loved Friends is a solace during this time when some of us still feel we cannot meet in the
