Tier Four of Tears
Croydon meeting house is closed until further notice but …
 
Croydon and Sutton are both continuing to hold Meetings for Worship via Zoom. We try to make them as much like normal Sunday meeting as possible - arrive any time from 10:00, worship 10:30 to 11:30, then notices and chat afterwards - but you will have to supply your own refreshments!
Warning - passcode
Croydon Virtual Meeting House now requires a passcode to enter it but it is as a simple as we could make it:
 Q      just capital Q for Quaker.

Booking Croydon Virtual Meeting House
Croydon Virtual Meeting House is open 24/7 but it only has one room so to avoid clashing usage, we have introduced a booking system.

The picture above is how we met together before the current crisis - in silent worship every Sunday from 10.30 to 11.30 am.

You are welcome to join us without prior notice, regardless of personal belief or nominal religion.

We also provide suitable acitivities for children every fourth Sunday of the month.

All our rooms are devoid of any religious symbols and are available for hire - further details
