Welcome

Glasgow Quaker Meeting offers a place of welcome and encounter where we can seek insight, inspiration and guidance, both in our own lives and in our life together.

The Quaker way of life is simple to access, contemporary in its concerns and radical in its assertion of equality and openness.

Exterior of Quaker Meeting House at 38 Elmbank Crescent, Glasgow G2 4PS.Quaker Meeting House is located at 38 Elmbank Crescent, Glasgow G2 4PS, just across from Charing Cross station. If you are coming here to attend a meeting or event, here is how to find us.

We offer a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us for worship every Sunday morning at 11 am. We are a large meeting, as Quaker meetings go, with around fifty to seventy people of all ages. We also have a smaller, half-hour Meeting for Worship on Wednesday afternoons at 12.30 pm. Wondering what to expect your first time at a Quaker meeting?

We are delighted to welcome families with children into our Meeting. We have paid Children’s Workers (with PVGs and references) and, in addition, a list of Willing Helpers (who will also have provided references). Every Sunday, there is a Children’s Worker and a Willing Helper who work to an annual programme that, using some Central Quaker resources as well as local ideas, aims to help children develop Quaker values and to take a full part in the Meeting as a whole. Although Children’s Meeting happens in our Rainbow Room, children join the main Meeting for the last ten minutes of Meeting for Worship. We aim to have “special” activities every 1st and 3rd Sunday.

Meetings are also held on the 2nd and last Sundays of the month at the Fraser Centre, Milngavie Cross, on the third Sunday of the month at 2pm in St Serf’s Episcopal Church, Shettleston, and on the first Monday of the month at 7.30pm in Langside Church, Southside.
