As we slowly make the transition to living alongside covid, the Ministry & Oversight team reviewed the current restrictions in place at the Meeting House and have agreed that masks can be optional in the Meeting House from now on, but we will continue to keep the chairs spaced apart. Also, those who want to shake hands at the end of meeting can now do this but please be aware that not everyone may feel ready to shake hands with others yet. We will continue to keep disinfectant spray at the front entrance.

We are exploring ways to have some sort of a Quaker presence at Queens University Belfast and are in the process of assembling a group to take this forward. We are starting with small beginnings and hope to have some sort of presence at Freshers Fair in the Autumn.

We have been looking at our unwritten Quaker conventions and practices as well as Quaker Jargon. We hope to produce a leaflet with explanations as to how they came about or why they are practiced.

We are also starting work on planning a series of ‘After Meeting Conversations’ for the autumn using the feedback from the survey carried out last year to provide our themes.

On Saturday, 28 May we held our annual plant sale, selling the seedlings and plants from across our gardens, enjoying coffee and buns together, and in the process raising funds for Quaker Service.


Friends from South Belfast were joined by Friends from Frederick Street, Lurgan, Moyallon and Hillsborough, and we were also delighted that many of our neighbours from Marlborough Park, on their way to the shops, also dropped in and bought plants. To date over £740 has been raised.
