Bedminster Quakers

Our bright meeting room overlooks a large garden which has lawn, shrubs, trees and birds. Our Meetings for Worship together are simple – we sit in a room with others and settle into silence. Sometimes someone may feel inspired to stand and speak briefly. We find this way of worship draws us together and may bring us closer to a power beyond ourselves.

The history of the meeting

Towards the end of the 19th century, Redland Quakers set up an Adult School in Princess Street, Bedminster, to provide education (with a strong religious base) for the people of what was then a very deprived area. Gradually, a new Quaker Meeting emerged and was recognised. When the area was redeveloped in the early 1950s, a new Meeting House was built in Wedmore Vale.

Nowadays, Bedminster Meeting serves people to the south and east of the city. Many people from the meeting engage in work for peace and justice and support organisations that help vulnerable people locally and further afield. We promote fair trade and support environmental awareness and sustainable living.
