Macclesfield Quakers hold meetings twice a month.
You're invited to join us for Meeting for Worship at the beautiful King Edward Street Unitarian Chapel.
The Quaker Way is firmly based in the belief that everyone has equal access to the Divine.
Simple, silent group communion with the Divine - however it is thought of - is at the core of the British Quaker Way.
There is no service and no priest, just the willingness to directly experience the Sacred as a group, rather than through a mediated service or personal meditation.
During this simple yet rich worship, anyone may be deeply moved by the Spirit to speak, enriching the silence rather than interrupting it.
Meeting for Worship begins at 2.30pm for one hour, followed by refreshments and informal discussion.
The chapel provides a wheelchair ramp for access from the street, a loop system for the hearing impaired, and accessible toilet facilities. There is ample car parking across the road."
Quaker Meeting for worship is held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at the Unitarian Chapel on King Edward Street from 2.30-3.30pm.

Full details: http://macclesfieldreflects.org.uk/2017/11/11/2017-prestbury-event/
A WWI research help desk will be provided by the Macclesfield Group of the Family History Society of Cheshire.
If you have any information, documents, photos or other artefacts relating to a local person who was involved in the Great War – soldier, sailor, nurse, land girl, etc – please bring it along to share.
Organisers are particularly interested in tracing the small tankards (shown above) which were presented to Prestbury men who served in the Great War. On Wednesday 14th January 1920, over 100 small silver tankards were presented to men from Prestbury, Butley and Upton who had served in the Great War and had returned, and to the relatives of those who lost their lives. Only three tankards, belonging to Harry Gibson and brothers William and John Thomson, have been traced so far, and these will be on display. If you have one of these tankards, or a photograph of one, please bring it to the exhibition, or phone Harry Carlisle on 01625 428331, so the details can be recorded.
