We warmly welcome everyone of all ages to our meetings. 

Winchester Quakers currently hold meetings for children and young people at 10:30 on the second Sunday of the month, and also have All Age Worship (blended) on the 5th Sunday of the month at 10.30am.

Southampton's Children’s Meeting meets once a month usually on the third Sunday with an age range of 2 to 9 at present. 

We aim to offer a Quaker approach which is accepting and encouraging, helping children to feel happy and secure. Themes are linked to Quaker Testimonies and Biblical stories with activities suitable to all ages. 

Parents are welcome to stay with their children or to join the adult meeting, as they wish. All volunteer helpers have DBS clearance and are aware of safeguarding issues ( see our safeguarding policy ).

Young Quakers

Junior Gathering, and Senior Conference offer the opportunity for young people aged 11-18 to come together for a week long residential event each summer.  They are run in a Quaker way, which means that the Quaker values of Truth & Integrity, Equality & Community, Peace, Simplicity and The earth & Environment are what guide us in creating a packed week of friendship, nurture and fun. Participants do not need to come from a Quaker background or be involved in Quakers, and funding is available for those who need it.

Young Friends General Meeting (YFGM)

YFGM is the national community for young adults (18-35) within the Religious Society of Friends. The name refers to both the organisation and to the three  gatherings held over weekends in February, May, and October each year. These take place in various Quaker Meeting Houses across Britain. 

They describe themselves as a diverse bunch, united by a willingness to explore issues surrounding faith and social justice, who worship together in silence, but also use workshops and interactive spirituality sessions to explore how their faith is calling them to act in the world.
