This page provides information about forthcoming events and activities at Hastings Local Quaker Meeting and is primarily for the use and information of local Friends and Attenders
Under normal circumstances, Hastings Quakers meet for Worship every Sunday at 10.30 am in the Meeting House at 5 South Terrace, Hastings TN34 1SA (80 yards from the junction with Queens Road). For the time being however, for so long as uncertainty about public health remains an issue, certain restrictions have been introduced. Anyone attending must wear a face covering when entering or leaving the Meeting House, altohugh these may be removed once you are seated inside. and social distancing of one metre is required except for anyone within your own “bubble”.
Some local Quakers who prefer not to venture out at the moment, are instead holding “virtual” meetings on Sunday mornings starting at 10.30 am over the internet by means of the popular “zoom” platform. If you would like to join in our Meeting for Worship using “zoom” you don’t need to have the zoom softwre installed on your own computer, just log in by clicking on this link :
For most computers this is all you need to do. However if you are using a device that requires you to enter details of our zoom account, these are :

Others among the local Quakers who prefer to meet each other in person, but who find that the conditions imposed on the use of the Quaker Meeting House feel too restrictive, are instead holding separate Meetings for Worship, also on Sunday mornings at 10.30 am, in Alexandra Park on the grass area just next to the war memorial (yes, we are aware of the irony!) which is at the southern end of the park, near to the roundabout where St Helen’s Road meets Queen’s Road. You are advised to bring something to sit on, such as a camp-stool or something similar. If you are driving there, on-road parking is available in Bethune Way.
Normally there would be an active schedule of events and activities taking place after Meeting for Worship on most Sundays. For the time being regrettably these have been suspended. We all look forward to being able to resume our normal round of activities as soon as possible.
