It has been suggested that we move the time for our Meeting for Worship, and all the other events that come after it, to half an hour later.
This has been explored before but has never been sensed to be the right thing, but that doesn’t mean that it is the wrong thing this time.
The notion of a 10.30am start for Meeting for Worship, and everything else starting half an hour earlier will be tested at our January (12th at 12.00) Meeting for Worship for Business. By then we will have heard from our Clissold House landlords (Hackney Council) if they can accommodate the change of times.
If anyone wanted to share any thoughts on the subject here and now then in the comments section below would be one place to do it. Emails or phone calls (especially phone calls) to me would also be very welcome. So far the comments I have heard after meeting have generally been in favour of a change, but there are those too who have reasons to prefer no change. We will not decide by vote of course but by the Quaker business method, which if you have never experienced I can highly recommend a go at, at the Meeting for Worship for Business on 12th January, to which all who are known to the meeting are welcome.
