Every Sunday we meet between 10:30 and 11:30 am. We sit in silence but during this time of private reflection anyone, including newcomers, may be inspired to speak or read or pray. At the end, after notices, we chat over tea and coffee. Children have their own activities in a separate room and join us for the last 5 minutes.
The meeting house was built in 1724 and retains many of its original features. There is wheelchair access to the meeting house but the toilet, in an outside room, has a small step and a narrow door. There are grab-rails inside the toilet.
Community groups and organisations are welcome to hire the meeting house, which holds about 30 people comfortably, though we have a few restrictions (for example, no alcohol).
Telephone the wardens on 01491 837 835 for more information on access, directions or room hire. They will put you in touch with a member of the Meeting if you wish to discuss any points about Quakerism.

Wallingford Quakers meet regularly in small groups during the week to explore different aspects of our spiritual journeys. We are diverse in our spiritual outlooks and life experiences. We do not try to persuade people on questions of faith nor put any pressure on anyone to accept particular views.
The meeting house is at the back of 13 Castle Street, Wallingford OX10 8DL, opposite Castle Gardens. There are some parking spaces opposite and more in the Waitrose public car park (first turn left off the High Street going west from the traffic lights). There are Sunday buses from Reading (09.22) and Oxford (09.45), both Thames Travel X40, arriving in the Market Place. Walk along St Martin's Street towards the traffic lights and cross the High Street into Castle Street .
