Area Meeting Notices

Milton Keynes Quakers are part of Luton and Leighton Area Meeting which covers Quaker meeting groups in West Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire


Sunday January 16th

10:30 – 11:30 Area Meeting for Worship

To help promote a stronger sense of community within the area meeting, following a proposal from Milton Keynes Meeting, there will be an area Meeting for Worship which will bring together all of the local meetings together in one meeting for worship. Friends are encouraged to join online via Zoom (so that we can more easily put names to faces), though the meeting will be blended.
