Welcome to Thirsk Quaker meeting

Hello and welcome to the Thirsk Quaker web site. We hope you will find all the information you need on here but if not, please go to the Contact Us page.


We have been meeting again in person for some time with a high degree of ventilation and a shorter meeting length but we feel the time is right to to change things a little more. 

From Sunday 17th October 2021 we will resume a full one hour meeting for worship and have social time for coffee and chat afterwards but with some necessary caveats:

  • Hand sanitisers will still be used.
  • We are not yet shaking hands.
  • Continuing to provide plentiful ventilation during Meeting but with a little less vigour now the weather is cooler.
  • Wearing masks when we are moving around inside but once seated, Friends
    are free to decide whether or not to continue to wear them as per Government advice.

On Sunday 10th October 2021 we were delighted to welcome four members of Acomb meeting who had cycled to Thirsk to deliver letters urging the local council to take note of the forthcoming COP26 climate change summit and make positive changes. This was our first shared lunch since early in 2020 and was much enjoyed by everyone.
