Welcome to Quakers in Epsom
Meeting in peace and friendship
We are a small but lively Quaker community in Epsom, forming part of
South London Area Quaker Meeting
Unlike our sister meetings at Sutton, Croydon, Purley and Streatham
we do not have a meeting house of our own, but we did hold a public meeting for worship
"after the manner of Friends" every Sunday
Our meetings are open to all, regardless of their personal beliefs and nominal
religion (if any). Do feel free to join us without prior notice.
You will find yourself warmly welcomed, but not confronted with ardent proselytising
or pestered to come again if you do not find yourself at home with a meeting
held largely in silence.
With deep regret we have decided to suspend all normal meetings for worship and
other in-person gatherings until further notice.
Croydon and Sutton are both organising Meetings for Worship to be held via Zoom.
We hope to make them as much like normal Sunday meeting as possible - arrive any time from 10:00,
worship 10:30 to 11:30, then notices and chat afterwards - but you will have to supply your own
How to connect:
- My machine is zoom-capable, ie. it has a user-facing camera, microphone and
speaker / headphone socket but zoom is not installed. Click on:
zoom.us/j/786763002 for Croydon or
zoom.us/j/741463181 for Sutton.
- My machine is zoom-capable and zoom is already installed. Go into zoom and join
786 763 002 for Croydon or
741 463 181 for Sutton.
- My machine is not zoom-capable. If you do not have zoom installed follow the instructions at
1. above. Or if you have it installed go to the meeting as per 2. above.
A box will then ask you to “choose one of the audio conference options”.
Select Phone Call. Pick up your phone, dial one of the numbers displayed and
follow the prompts to enter Meeting Id and Participant Id.
You can see everyone on the screen while hearing what’s going on through the phone.
- My only means of communcicating is a POTS phone
(POTS = plain old telephone service - but not so old that it has a rotary dial!).
For those not familiar with using Zoom, I do recommend the advice on
the Woodbrooke website at woodbrooke.org.uk/about/online-mfw/Online-worship-advice
