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.
We currently Worship in a socially distanced manner and in a well ventilated room each Sunday morning. If you would like to wear a mask please do, although it is not something we are requesting everyone to do at the moment. Please remember to wrap up warm if the weather is chilly as we keep the doors and windows open during Worship.
For those unable to attend Quaker Meeting for Worship in person, we host blended Meeting for Worship using Zoom, bringing our community closer together in this uncertain time. The link for the blended worship is available from our clerk (see below).
Newcomers and visitors are very welcome to join us for Worship either in the Meeting House or on zoom. For information about joining us, please contact our clerk.
We offer Children’s Meeting face to face twice a month on the second and fourth Sundays, which is for anyone. We also offer a monthly face to face Young People’s Group aimed at those who attend secondary school.
To find out more about our children and young people’s programme, please get in touch through our clerk (see below).

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.
