This is the web site of Bristol & Wessex Regional Gathering of the Religious Society of Friends, known as Quakers. This region stretches from Chippenham in North Wiltshire diagonally to Lyme Regis is West Dorset, and from Minehead in West Somerset to Salisbury in South Wiltshire, taking in the Cities of Bath, Bristol, Wells and Salisbury, with Taunton, Bridgewater, Dorchester and Street, etc.. Quite a large chunk of mainly rural South West England.
Our Society has some 38 Local Meetings in the Bristol & Wessex Region, all of which are listed within this web site with contact and Meetings information and timing.
We hope that you will be more able to find us having looked at the information within, and be interested enough to ask us to send you an Enquirers Pack or to come along to your nearest Meeting and join in our worship.
A new innovation of Outreach has fairly recently become available which we have named
"Becoming Friends" and which is available both online and by post from our College which is part of the Birmingham campus. Links to the college can be found in the LINKS page.
Regional Gathering's remit is a social one with educational edges to it! We hold two Gatherings per year and try to fit in with current needs of the Society and its trends of thought of the time. We also give Friends the oppurtunity to meet, converse and enjoy each others company. At the same time keeping up-
2014 is a special year for us as many of our Members will be assisting on the organisation of Britain Yearly Meeting which will happen in August on the campus of the University at Bath, at Claverton Down, just outside the city.
