"Quakers respect the creative power of God in every human being and in the world around us. We work through quiet processes for a world where peaceful means bring about just settlements."

The response to the call for donations has been amazing and needs to pause briefly while the current supplies are sent on to their destination. Currently, both upstairs rooms at St Andrew's Church are overflowing. As soon as there is space, more donations will be accepted. If planning to donate please remember that any clothing needs to be warm winter clothes not summer things. 

On Wednesday 2 March there was a silent vigil in the centre of Devizes in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. It was an impressive gathering with around 250 people despite having very short notice. Following this donations of essential goods are being collected at St Andrews Church. It is planned that the first consignment will leave in about a week. Things are changing fast but current opening times to bring items are below.

Friday 9-12 and 6-8pm
Saturday 9-12
Monday 7th 9-12
Tuesday 8th 9-12
Wednesday 9th, 6-8pm
Thursday 10th 9-4pm and 6-8pm.

There may be more opening times as we gather volunteers.

 

There will be a Fairtrade tea party at the Meeting House between 2.00pm and 4.00pm on Saturday 26 February. Fairtrade producers need our support more than ever as they confront the effects both of the pandemic and of climate change. Please come and join us to purchase Fairtrade items and learn more about how Fairtrade works.

If you are not able to come in person, please sit with a cup of coffee and join an on line coffee morning at 10.30 on 5 March. For details of the Zoom link email Jasper Selwyn. jasperselwyn@hotmail.com

Devizes Quakers wish you a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a positive start to the new year.

Regretfully, for the next week or two we will be holding our Meetings for Worship via Zoom and will consider whether to use the Meeting House when we understand the progress of the virus.

We will also decide how to go ahead with hirings and update our procedures for keeping people safe as needed.

 Please contact Robin Brookes at clerk@devizesquakers.org.uk if you would like to join us by Zoom. We look forward to being together again.

 

 

 

 

 

We were pleased to see old friends at the Fairtrade coffee morning held on 20 November in the meeting Room despite the need to take precautions to avoid transmission of the Covid virus. People dropped in to buy or order products in time for Christmas. Some of the usual products are sadly not currently obtainable but we were pleased to have had sales of over £90 which will help support producers in poorer parts of the world.
