Take a Break

With Quakers

Join us for a time of quiet in the peace of the Quaker Meeting Room. No singing, no dancing, no drama, just an hour of quiet to contemplate the future of the world or silently review the last show you saw. Quakers traditionally worship in silence but there is no need to become a Quaker to join us.

Art and Witnessing

Workshop by Edinburgh Quakers

Art is witness of our experiences; it can also be worship of the most imaginative kind.
This event, which is both active and reflective, comprises a visit to the beach at Cramond (on public transport) to gather natural and human-made objects as source material, an indoor workshop to make pieces of art, photograph, draw or write, and a curated exhibition at the Quaker Meeting House to share our findings.
We will witness our thoughts and feelings too.
