About Us

We are a small rural Meeting, with Friends travelling as far as 20 miles to worship with us.

We welcome anyone who is interested in experiencing Quaker worship and learning more about Quakerism, and we look forward to more families joining us.

We are happy to receive ministry in either English or Welsh. Our venue is accessible and we aim to be a fully inclusive meeting.

Activities we have been led to work on

Asylum and Refuge

We are a Sanctuary Meeting, which means that we help to support local refugee families and work with others towards the ending of the Hostile Environment approach to asylum and refuge in the UK.

 

Lampeter Food Bank

Rural poverty is often underestimated. We are a supporting church for the local Food Bank and a number of us volunteer with it and one member volunteers with the Llandeilo food bank.

 

Quaker Concern for Animals

We hold that all life is sacred. We believe that our testimonies to justice and peace should extend to all species, and that all animal products should be farmed ethically. One of our members works actively with Quaker Concern for Animals on this.

 

Ecumenical Links

We work closely with local churches and chapels, and welcome opportunities for shared worship and witness.


When We Meet

At present we meet every Wednesday at 10.30am for an hour's worship. The Meeting room opens from 10.15am for chat and welcome, and then we settle into silence at 10.30am.

On occasion we also have meetings for business and spiritual reflection on these mornings, and then we have a shorter meeting for worship.

We also meet for an hour's worship on 1st and 3rd Sundays in the month in Cwmann Community Centre. On other Sundays some of us join online worship meetings in South Wales or meet for a quiet walk together.

Please contact us for further details about Wednesdays or Sundays - you are very welcome to join us..

 

Meeting Size

Small. Our average attendence is around eight people.

 

Children's Meeting?

Yes. We have no children attending at present, so no regular children's meeting, but we welcome children and have activities for them.

 

Accessibility

  • Wheelchair access
  • Wheelchair accessible toilet
  • Parking

    Here is an appeal close to one of our members hearts. If you care about the beautiful Cambrian mountains too please consider signing.

    Jim Perrin recently contributed a 'Country diary' in The Guardian, lamenting the damage done to the countryside around Soar y Mynydd by off-roaders and conifer planting.

    Topical article from the latest Quake about the Rwanda plans for asylum seekers.
    I noted the lines below especially..
    'A policy ostensibly aimed at people smugglers, but which targets and punishes the people being smuggled, is akin to victim blaming. If anyone else forcibly moved innocent people thousands of miles away against their will, the government would be prosecuting them for people trafficking.'
