Every third Sunday, there is a Bring and Share lunch after Meeting for Worship. Soup and rolls are provided in the Elizabeth Fry Room (beside the front door) and everyone is invited to this whether they have brought something to share or not.
Each month there are two walks that are organised in the surrounding area to which are members are invited. One tackles hill-walks and is for the more physically fit Quakers amongst us. The other is for a group that calls itself the ‘Sociable Strollers’ and they take more gentle routes such as a stretch along the Forth and Clyde Canal or in Glasgow Green or the sea-front at Largs.
Through the year we engage in a number of social events. We have an annual party in the Spring where members can display their skills in singing, playing an instrument, stand-up routines, etc and in the Autumn, we hold a barbecue in Mugdock Park. The children of the Meeting have regular outings including visits to the Pantomime at Christmas time.
Every two or three months, the Glasgow* Gallivanters, a local group of the Quaker Gender and Sexual Diversity Community, hold meetings on Sundays after Meeting for Worship for sociable and cultural events and to discuss common concerns. These meetings are open to everyone of whatever sexuality or gender identity. Click on the link for more information.
