Bessbrook Friends’ Meeting



Welcome to Bessbrook Friends’ Meeting. Meeting for Worship is Sunday at 11.15am. Visitors are w
elcome to attend Quaker meetings, which are open to all.

Friends believe that there is something of God in everyone. Quaker worship is based on a gathered stillness and expectant waiting and listening.  We come together in a silent worship and seek to receive inspiration and communicate with God. The stillness gives time to reflect and think. It is a chance to leave the busy world behind. No one is appointed to lead the worship or perform rituals. As we sit together in silence, someone may be moved to speak briefly about a deeply felt concern, share a message or offer a prayer.

In the quietness of the meeting, we can become aware of a deep and powerful spirit of love and truth, transcending our ordinary, day-to-day experiences. This sense of direct contact with the divine is at the heart of the Quaker way of worship and nourishes us in the rest of our daily lives. An exchange of handshakes signals the end of Meeting for Worship one hour later.
