Bread and marmalade is provided – but other contributions are welcome. Meeting for Worship commences each Sunday at 10.30 am. On the second and last Sundays of the month, 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.

The foodbank needs our support, regardless of where we chose to make our donations. Items are collected regularly from the lobby of the Meeting House. Most-wanted items are:
long-life fruit juice, semi-skimmed UHT milk, sponge puddings, canned meat, pasta sauces, rice, toilet rolls.
Cash donations also needed for running costs. https://exeter.foodbank.org.uk
Creative Days at the Meeting House from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm will continue on Mondays in January and February
A bread and soup lunch will be provided. These days give opportunities for Ffriends to concentrate on their own project (which
might be writing, drawing, painting, marquetry, lace making, clothes making or anything else portable) or you can help with card making,
knitting and sewing to support a peace project. You can drop in for an hour or two or come for the whole day. If you are not feeling very creative but would like to join us for an hour to read a book, write a letter or have a hot drink, we will be pleased to see you.
If you have been sent birthday/greetings cards (not Christmas cards) that you no longer want, please bring them to the Meeting House for us to
recycle into new cards. There is a box for them on the shelf under the long noticeboard. Many thanks.
We are sorry that the car park is not available during the day on weekdays but perhaps you could come by bus or maybe a Friend would give you a lift. Please come and join us if you can.
Prayer for the Country: St Petrock's on the High Street (opposite McDonald's)
St Petrocks has a prayer space for anyone to spend some time praying for our country. There are three prayer stations, around the themes of unity, peace and hope. Open daily during working hours, except when in use for meetings. The prayer space has been created by Ross Maynard, the community minister from South Street Baptist Church - a good example of churches working together.
