1st May 2021
Following the latest advice from the government about the unfolding relaxation of restrictions, the Brant Broughton Meeting House is open on Sunday but the requirements to wear a mask and remain socially distanced remain in place. The need to be ultra-cautious for those who are elderly and/or are once again being advised to shelter at home will be a personal consideration. The window upstairs and the doors need to remain open so it may still be a trifle bracing in this very late Spring! The kitchen and Barn remain closed for now but the socialising rules state 6 people from two households may meet outside.

Collection for May:
The Quaker Tapestry
This month's collection goes to support the upkeep of
The Quaker Tapestry. The link below takes you to their site where you can donate directly or you can send your donation to our Treasurer in the usual way.
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.
Events for May
In addition to the Meeting for Worship at the Meeting House,
a small group of us are still holding a Meeting for Worship on
Zoom on Sunday morning and are finding that the comfort and
support of seeing the faces of loved Friends, even if on a screen,
is a solace during this time when some of us
still feel unable to meet in person at the
Meeting House. We are joining with our Friends at
Newark Meeting and with other Friends from the area
in their blended Meeting.
Contact the clerks (see bottom of this page)
if you would like to join with us.
. The next area Fellowship Meeting is on Saturday May 8th at 10am. It is being led by The Books of Discipline [Red] Book Revision Committee. Further details will be circulated nearer the time.
Monthly Mailing from Friends House
