Meeting for Worship Times:
Every Sunday, from 9:00am onwards, Friends gather to share breakfast and conversation in the Meeting House. Come and
spend time with a small group of Friends, relaxing over tea and toast. Bread and marmalade is provided – but other contributions are welcome.  Meeting for Worship commences each Sunday at 10.30 am.  Children start the meeting with the adults and after 10 minutes they leave for their own structured activities. The Meeting is followed by tea and coffee. There is a shorter half hour Meeting each Sunday at 6:00pm.

On Thursdays between 12:15–1:00pm there is a Meeting for Worship at St Mary Arches Church, Mary Arches Street, Exeter, followed by tea and coffee.
