Children and Young People

Dorchester Children and Young people’s activities

By arrangement. Contact:

There is an opportunity for children and young people to meet and enjoy activities together (under the guidance of DBS checked adults). Activities are in keeping with Quaker Practice and  include baking, crafts or exploring nature.

The children and young people attend Meeting for Worship at 10.30am with their parents for the first 10mins then go off for their own activity in a separate room but return at the end of Meeting for Worship.

The composition of the children’s group varies in age and gender. The activities are tailored to suit the children’s needs. We hope to facilitate age appropriate discussion and interaction. All Children & Young People welcome.
