Welcome to the Brant Broughton Quaker meeting web site. Our meeting is centred on our Meeting House in the village of Brant Broughton, Lincolnshire and serves a wide area with many Quakers (Friends) living in the Sleaford, Newark and Grantham areas. We currently have about 40 active members and our meeting has been growing in numbers over recent years.
We hope these pages will tell you a little about our meeting here in Brant Broughton
We meet every Sunday at 11am and every third Thursday at 7.30pm for our shared silence in the Quaker tradition and all are welcome to join us. We have an early morning Meeting at 9.30am on the second and fourth Sundays.
No need for an introduction just come along or if you would like to talk to someone first then telephone Anne our Clerk. It’s a friendly and welcoming group where a warm welcome is guaranteed.
There is a children’s meeting on the first Sunday of each month when the children join our adult meeting for the first 10 minutes and then leave for their their own activities.
The Meeting House was given to us in 1701 by a local Quaker farmer and is a grade 1 listed building because of its historic significance and simple unspoilt character.
We also have what is known as the ‘Heritage Room’ which is used by a number of local village organisations and is available for hire.
New book by John Gwatkin now available!
WHAT HAVE THE QUAKERS EVER DONE FOR US? – a short introduction to Quaker achievements
Written originally as a response to Richard Dawkins’s allegation that “religion has had nothing to do with social improvement” this booklet finds a unique way of presenting Quakerism to both newcomers and experienced Friends alike. It covers achievements in pacifism, peace making, relief work, equality, democracy, human rights, human relationships and reform, education, science and the industrial revolution. The reader is left wanting to know more about the remarkable Friends who had such a powerful influence on the way we live and think today.
“A very good piece of outreach. It makes me proud to be a Friend.” John Punshon.
