Tea and coffee follows Meeting for Worship, as well as other regular activities which you are welcome to stay for:

  • Local Meeting for Business is held on the first Sunday of each months (except January and August)
  • Singing Together takes place at 1200 on the third Sunday of each month
  • Also on third Sundays we have a bring-and-share lunch.

We also have a Meeting for Worship on Wednesdays from 1315-1345, preceded most weeks by a Soup and Cheese lunch at 1230.

We also have monthly Evening Meetings for Worship, in which we explore different topics, and Friends from across the Cambridgeshire Area are meeting on Monday evenings during term time for regular one-off discussions entitled Ideas in Isolation. Please get in touch if you would like to join.

Please do not come to the Meeting House if you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms.

Getting to the Meeting House

The front door of Jesus Lane Meeting House

Jesus Lane Meeting house is close to the city centre, situated at the corner of Jesus Lane and Park Street, and next to the ADC Theatre.

There is a large cycle park immediately outside the Meeting House.

Several city and country bus routes pass near the Meeting House. Drummer Street bus station is within ten minutes’ walk.

The nearest car parks are Castle Hill and the Grafton Centre, as Park Street car park is no longer in operation.

Park & Ride bus service from Madingley Road car park stops at Bridge Street, within five minutes’ walk.

There is a designated parking bay for Blue Badge holders opposite 6—11 Jesus Lane; approach via Jesus Lane only.

History of Jesus Lane Meeting

Quakers first held meetings in Jesus Lane in the 1650s. Parts of the present Meeting House date from 1777 and there have been additions and rebuildings at various times in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Today, Friends still meet each Sunday and Wednesday for worship based in silence.

We warmly welcome anyone who feels drawn to experiencing Quaker worship.
