Meeting for Worship
Dorchester Meeting house continues to be open for Meeting for Worship on Sundays and Wednesdays.
Our meeting room space is limited due to 2 metre social distance restrictions and Face Covering must be worn at all times.
For Sunday 10.30 we have a Blended Meeting for Worship with some Friends in the Meeting room while others are at home. We join together using a screen/speakers in the Meeting room showing all those Worshipping together.
Due to limited numbers able to be accommodated in the meeting house our Elders and Overseers are arranging a rota of invited Quakers to attend on Sundays.
