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 5pm.

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 the 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.

And finally, we have online worship mid-week on Tuesdays from 5 to 6 pm.

You are very welcome to join us - please get in touch for more details.

 

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.

    Swansea Meeting house have been doing such a great gardening and food production project with women4resources. 3 of our members visited them recently and wrote a report. I've copied a couple of sections as its such a nice good news story and if you would like the full report send a message to this page and I'll send it on.

    Swansea Quaker Garden Project with Women4resources

    Although we had been able to grow and harvest some vegetables for distributing to the women from
    Women4Resources last year, we hoped from early this year that we would be able to meet in person in the
    garden. However, whilst we were still limited in what we could do, we decided to have a go at getting
    everyone planting up some herb pots that they could have at home.
    Carol from Women4Resources had done some fundraising so we had the funds available to buy some
    troughs, pots, compost and herb plants, although some of the herbs were sourced from our own
    resources. Carol delivered all the materials to the participants in advance and then we set up a Zoom
    session - Erica had never done planting demonstrations via Zoom before - it was quite an experience, thank
    goodness Carol was able to spot what the others were doing as Erica did the demonstration.....
    ......
    Some quotes from the project:
    Lubna: “The vegetables are all the time very nice and fresh, we enjoyed a lot and I tried a lot of
    new recipes with all the vegetables”. “My children love the corn!”
    Lili: “The vegetables are all fresh, I really like to use them for making soup”.
    “I used carrots, sweet corn and some tomatoes to make soup – did not add any seasoning!”
    Funmi: “I’ve not seen fresh corn like this for years!”
    “The spinach is very nice, not like from shops!”
    “I can’t believe I am eating such fresh vegetables!”
