History

The meeting house is a peaceful 17th century, grade II listed, thatched building with a separate small hall (available for hire), set in a burial ground.

The Meeting Today

People who come to worship for the first time tell us how peaceful the Meeting House is. Though there are not many of us, and sadly children don’t come often, we offer a warm welcome to everyone. Meeting lasts for an hour after which visitors particularly are invited to stay for refreshments.

Our Hall is available on Sunday mornings for use as a children’s room and prior notice of visiting children will allow us time for suitable preparation.

The Hall is also used by a local playgroup in term time (mornings) and by several local groups meeting (usually fortnightly) in the evenings. Details of availability and hire charges can be obtained by telephoning 07526 431879.

Portishead Friends outreach includes their long-standing co-operation with the other churches in the town on issues of joint concern.
