3 March 2024 at 19:00 Meeting for Worship

Sunday evening MfW

Venue: Online via Zoom

Dear Friend,

As usual, you are warmly invited to the half-hour meeting for worship held on Sunday evenings at 7pm. If you haven’t attended before, we’ve included a message about the meeting below the joining details (the same link and passcode each Sunday)

Please ask for the link via our contact form.

About this online meeting for worship:

Some Friends attend this evening meeting often or occasionally in addition to their own local worship held at another time, while for others this is their only opportunity to worship in community. It's therefore a unique and well-attended occasion when Friends across South Wales join together in worship. Everyone is welcome.


The meeting is open to join after 6:45. We settle into silence just before 7 to enable worship to begin in stillness. During the first 10-15 minutes or so a Friend will offer as ministry a short reading they have chosen, which might be a passage from Quaker faith & practice, or it could be something else. Anyone can offer to bring the reading for a particular Sunday: email to agree a date. What you read is up to you – to choose in advance or decide in the moment.

We share the eldership between us, members and attenders alike, with one Friend each week serving as the elder for that meeting. At 7.30 the elder draws worship to a close and invites us to move into a period of ‘Afterword’, when we hold the stillness – for as long as feels right – for anyone to offer a thought that arose for them in worship, or to respond to the reading or other ministry. Afterword tends to develop naturally into conversation after 15 minutes or so, and the meeting usually closes at around 8pm, but people leave when they are ready.

We look forward to seeing you at meeting for worship.

Silent Vigil for Climate Justice

Venue: Outside Barclays, 1-5, St. David's Way, 28 Working St, St David's Centre, Cardiff CF10 2DP

Organised by Christian Climate Action supported by SWAM's Environment & Sustainability Cluster - who are putting energy into this event and doing only occasional vigils at the Senedd.

Barclays Bank is Europe’s leading fossil fuel investor. Since 2016, Barclays has invested an estimated £150 billion in fossil-fuel companies. We will gather for an hour of silence as an act of grief for those dying because of climate chaos and to pray that Barclays stops funding climate breakdown. Everyone of all faiths and none are welcome to join us in silence, meditation, or prayer.

For more information contact cymruCCA@gmail.com
Second Saturday of the month 11am-12noon
Outside Barclays Bank, Working Street (opposite St John’s Gardens), Cardiff City Centre, CF101GN

From SWAM E&S cluster:

A recent decision was taken to discontinue monthly vigils outside the Senedd, but to hold such vigils on special occasions, including the summer solstice and national climate weeks. We wish to concentrate on joining the monthly vigils set up by Christian Climate Action Cymru outside Barclays Bank on Working Street

The main reason for this decision was that the footfall outside the Senedd is fairly small compared with the hundreds (if not thousands) or people walking up or down The Hayes, which is one of Cardiff's main shopping centres. So we can hand out far more leaflets. We have also begun handing out to young families copies of 'Caring for the Earth We Love', “a booklet for kids (of all ages)”

The main reason for this decision was that the footfall outside the Senedd is fairly small compared with the hundreds (if not thousands) or people walking up or down The Hayes, which is one of Cardiff's main shopping centres. So we can hand out far more leaflets. We have also begun handing out to young families copies of 'Caring for the Earth We Love', “a booklet for kids (of all ages)”

9 June 2024 at 19:00 Meeting for Worship

Sunday evening MfW

Venue: Online via Zoom

Dear Friend,

As usual, you are warmly invited to the half-hour meeting for worship held on Sunday evenings at 7pm. If you haven’t attended before, we’ve included a message about the meeting below the joining details (the same link and passcode each Sunday)

Please ask for the link via our contact form.

About this online meeting for worship:

Some Friends attend this evening meeting often or occasionally in addition to their own local worship held at another time, while for others this is their only opportunity to worship in community. It's therefore a unique and well-attended occasion when Friends across South Wales join together in worship. Everyone is welcome.


The meeting is open to join after 6:45. We settle into silence just before 7 to enable worship to begin in stillness. During the first 10-15 minutes or so a Friend will offer as ministry a short reading they have chosen, which might be a passage from Quaker faith & practice, or it could be something else. Anyone can offer to bring the reading for a particular Sunday: email to agree a date. What you read is up to you – to choose in advance or decide in the moment.

We share the eldership between us, members and attenders alike, with one Friend each week serving as the elder for that meeting. At 7.30 the elder draws worship to a close and invites us to move into a period of ‘Afterword’, when we hold the stillness – for as long as feels right – for anyone to offer a thought that arose for them in worship, or to respond to the reading or other ministry. Afterword tends to develop naturally into conversation after 15 minutes or so, and the meeting usually closes at around 8pm, but people leave when they are ready.

We look forward to seeing you at meeting for worship. 


In friendship
