There is a thriving Quaker Meeting in Penrith. Quakers have met in Penrith for over three hundred years in what is still the original Meeting House. This is situated in Meeting House Lane, close to the centre of the town.
Meeting for Worship is held every Sunday at 10.30 for an hour, followed by tea and coffee and a chance to chat.
On the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of each month we have a blended Meeting for Worship, with some people in the Meeting House and others joining on Zoom. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays we do not use Zoom.
For further information or for the link for Zoom, please email email@example.com or phone 077860 73584.

Our Sunday meetings at 10:30 usually have around 20 people, with often 2-6 children in our separate children’s meeting. We’re generally quite a quiet meeting, though we welcome – and get – thought provoking ministry from friends. We have an active and regular Children’s Meeting during term-time and we hold a variety of fellowship events.
The meeting house itself is comfortable and practical; it’s also well used by other groups, ranging from the University of the Third Age, to fitness groups and hobby groups. Enquiries can be made through the room hire page here.
