Welcome to Disley Meeting!

We meet each Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

All are welcome, anytime. We meet for about an hour, and afterwards we have coffee and tea and an informal chat. If you like, you can just come and join us for that bit.

We meet both in person at the meeting house and online using Zoom (link in Find Us below).

We have a Children's Meeting the first and third Sunday of each month, and other Sundays by arrangement.

We have a loop system, an accessible toilet, and a stairlift.

Disley visit to Edale Chapel

     

A group of Disley Quakers visited Edale Methodist Chapel at Barber Booth and held a meeting for worship there, invited by our dear Friend Belinda Critchlow.



The chapel, founded in 1811, is part way through a major restoration project supported by grant funding. We heard about its fascinating history and place within the local Methodist circuit, as well as plans for its continuing future as “a place to be” for locals and visitors alike.



We had a great day out, expanding our circle of friendship and enjoying a warm welcome, shared picnic and amazing sunshine.

Disley April Collection

This month (April), Disley Meeting are collecting for the below.

 

BRUMANNA HIGH SCHOOL

Founded by Theophilus Waldermeier, an American Quaker in 1873 in Lebanon.

There are 1,250 boarding and day students from all over the world – 45 nationalities. There are modern facilities alongside historic buildings on a 16 acre site, 750m above sea level in pine woods – a healthy place for the children. They are a recognised International Baccalaureate School.  They are regarded  as ‘a beacon of light promoting Quaker values – respect, tolerance and peaceful resolutions in a deeply divided country. It has survived invasions, occupations, civil wars, famine, disasters both natural and man-made and most recently the complete economic disintegration of the country.’ Their motto is ‘I serve’ and in their 150thanniversary in 2023 they planted an olive tree for peace and 150 saplings in the grounds. They are twinned with Sidcot Quaker School in the UK.

Ramallah Friends School

In the West Bank, Palestine.

Founded in 1869 by American Quakers the Friends’ Girls School and then the Friends’ Boys’ School in 1901. They have experienced Turkish, British and Jordanian rule and Israeli occupation and survived and served as a school, a centre for refugees, a hospital and a cultural centre for lectures, concerts and activities. They are linked to Ramallah Quaker Meeting built in 1910 in the centre of Ramallah. They have continued to provide excellent education throughout the political unrest and violence, keeping alive the hope and vision of a better future. They have 1400 students from kindergarten to the International Baccalaureate.   They hold Silent Meeting throughout the school programme to remind everyone of the presence of God in their lives. The children are encouraged to explore their individuality and their responsibility as school community members as a person of faith and to live a life of service.
