Ross on Wye

Ross Friends Meeting House is at the foot of Brampton Street, Ross on Wye.
Our Meeting started around the year 1675, and most of the current building dates from 1804.

Meeting for Worship takes place every Sunday at 10.30am.

Meeting for Worship is held every Sunday at 10.30am. That usually finishes around 11:30am and is followed by any Afterwords and Notices, you’re welcome to join us for some coffee, tea, and biscuits!

On the second Sunday in the month we continue with a discussion followed by shared lunch.

While we hold no regular children’s meeting at the moment, children are always very welcome. For those too young to join the main meeting, we can usually lay on an impromptu meeting for them in our small meeting room. Please ring either Ann Addison (01981 540515) or Jane Turnbull (01989 780350) if you would like to discuss any aspect of this in advance.

The Story of the Quakers in RossThe Story of the Quakers in Ross
Through telling the story of the Quakers in Ross, John Powell manages to relate not just their story but also a social history of Britain from the time of the Civil Wars to the present day: of attitudes to religion, of social networking, of people standing up for what they saw as their rights, of attitudes to the well-off, of the mores of society at any given period and of petty mindedness, often amongst people of whom one would hope for greater things.
Book available to purchase at Ross Meeting House for £10.
