Besides gathering on Sundays and Wednesdays for Meetings for Worship, groups of Friends meet in each others’ houses in Creative Listening Groups and sometimes more formally in ‘Light Groups’. We also have Bible Study groups that meet regularly on Sunday afternoons and at other times we have run courses on, for instance, ‘Liberation Theology’, the work of the Trappist monk, Thomas Merton, etc.
On the last Monday of each month, there is a meeting of the Quaker Healing Group at 7.45 pm in the Meeting House. This group is a branch of the Friends Fellowship of Healing.
From time to time, Glasgow Quakers put on a programme called Quaker Quest which is aimed at enquirers (or newish attenders of our meeting). It allows people to experience Quaker worship, to hear why being a Quaker matters to us, to talk to each other and to us about it and get an idea of the sort of people we are.
Regularly Members of Glasgow Quaker Meeting hold a Meeting for Worship outside the North Gate of Faslane Nuclear Submarine Base on the Gare Loch to pursue our witness against Nuclear Weapons.
Our Meeting takes it in turns with other churches to do a Tea Run to provide for homeless people in the Glasgow City Centre and throughout the week, the Meeting House lets its various rooms out to groups whose aims do not conflict with our own.
At least once a month, we take collections after Meeting for Worship for charitable organisations that are supported by members of our Meeting.
