Meetings for Worship

If one or more Quakers meet with a few others for Worship on a regular basis, this would normally be called a Worshipping Group. If the group is larger and meets for Worship more regularly they may decide to take on some administrative obligations and become a Local Meeting which would have a Clerk, Treasurer and some other positions, depending on their needs, and would meet for business occasionally. The Local Meeting is guided by our Handbook of Practice and Procedure, which sets out more detail of our administrative structure and how we normally operate.

Online Meetings for Worship

There are two online Meetings for Worship connected with Australian Quakers:

  • A Meeting is held every Sunday at 5:00pm Australian Eastern time and lasts for about 30 minutes with the opportunity to talk with others afterwards. For more information click here.
  • A Meeting is held on the second and fourth Thursday each month at 5:00pm Australian Eastern time and lasts for about 30 minutes with the opportunity to talk with others afterwards. For more information click here.
  • During the COVID-19 restrictions many face-to-face meetings have been suspended in Australia but there are temporary online Meetings for Worship. Details are available here.
