Gillingstool, Thornbury BS35 2EG
Tel: 01454 419118


This group started two years ago and is aimed at the older end of GS, years 11+ (ages 15+). It is intended to supplement, not replace GS, and guests are always welcome. It is planned to run on the first Sunday of each month. The Youth Emmaus course has inspired several sessions this year. A slightly quieter meeting with more emphasis on fellowship and discussion – although we still appear to find plenty of time for playing games, and people are welcome to attend either or both as they choose.

Thornbury Quakers

Quakerism is a way of life built upon principles of truth, equality, peace, simplicity and sustainability rather than a written set of beliefs, and Quakers have a long-held commitment to putting their faith into direct action in the world.
Quaker meetings offer a place where people can find a real sense of community and are free to challenge, question and explore their own beliefs, values and ideas. Many Quakers describe it as a spiritual home – a place of deep connections; a group of people bound together by an awareness of the sacred in all things and a desire to change the world for the better.
Thornbury Quaker meeting is held every Sunday 10:30-11:30am in the Chantry, Castle Street. You do not have to be a Quaker to attend a meeting. All are welcome.
For more information telephone Maggie on 01454 413535 or click below.

High Street, Thornbury
