What We Do- Regular Events

Swansea Meeting offers regular opportunities for those involved in the Meeting to gather together to socialise and to enrich and develop their spiritual lives.

The following events and activities feature on the monthly diary which is usually made available after Meeting for Worship on the first and second Sundays of the month. Events and activities are also announced in Notices after Meeting and you can ask the Clerk or one of the Eldership and Oversight Team for further information.

Meeting for Worship
Meeting for Worship starts at 10.45 and is brought to an end at 11.45. The Meeting starts though as soon as the first person sits down in the circle of chairs in the Meeting Room.

Shared Lunch
Friends bring food to share with each other as they catch up with each other or get to know each other better. The shared lunch happens after the first Sunday in the month. You do not have to bring food – we normally have plenty spare.

We have also visited the local mosque on St Helen's Road, heard individual Friends share their Spiritual Journeys.
