Children & Young People in Meeting

Once a month we have a children and young people’s meeting, usually on the second Sunday at 10.30. 

 

We aim to have our youngsters with us in the main hall for the first 15 minutes of our adult meeting. Then two responsible adults and our young friends move to the Rigge room next door. We talk, listen, and learn about each other and Quakerism in a safe, informal and friendly circle where we are all equal and can be who we are, no matter what age!

Examples of activities:

* We have made our own white Peace poppies,

* Created a small scale Quaker meeting (image)

* Prepared mini trifles for a shared lunch

* Held a sustainability quiz out of which grew our Tree of life. We drew a tree and cut out leaves and footprints to reflect our thoughts, actions and hints & tips for a more sustainable future. The leaves of the tree tell you about actions taken by Horsham Quaker meeting and the footprints speak about people’s individual endeavours and ideas to learn from each other what we can do in our own lives to improve the environment. At the present time we have three young attenders ranging from 6 to 14 years old. We have room for more and would warmly welcome any child or youngster joining us.

 

For more information about upcoming meeting dates or queries please contact Jacinta White. I am DBS checked to work with children.

Quakers say:

Each person is unique, precious, a child of God.

We are all amazed at the creativity talents of our young people (and adult leader!). We had a wonderful time studying the quirky and diverse little figures made of clay and wondering if they represent any of us!? 

As some dont sit very steady on their chairs ...and even let their heads roll off onto the floor ... we perhaps hope not! Not sure any of us Quakers now keep with hat etiquette but otherwise its a pretty good likeness to Horsham Meeting house interior. Anyway  we LOVE IT and it takes regular pride of place on our centre table.
