Alston Meeting

The Quaker Meeting House in Alston is a small, historic building dating back to 1732; it is situated in the centre of this high North Pennine town. All visitors are warmly welcomed to our Meetings for Worship to join us for the quiet and reflection, which is at the heart of a Quaker Meeting.

 

Our Meetings for Worship take place on the FOURTH SUNDAY of every month throughout the year at 10.30am and, in addition, from MAY - SEPTEMBER on the SECOND WEDNESDAY of these months, also at 10.30am.

 

Though small, the Meeting House provides an excellent space in which other groups can meet and we encourage its use throughout the community. A full programme of renovation and redecoration was undertaken recently. As well as the Meeting Room there is a kitchen area and toilet facilities and the whole building is accessible to disabled people.  Groups currently using the Meeting House include a Male Choir, a Methodist group and a Meditation group. Any enquiries about booking Alston Meeting House can be made via Carol Graham (details below or phone 01388 -517145) or via Antony Christie ( phone 01434 -381633)).
