Children and Young People

Children's Meeting

Children’s Meeting meets every Sunday in term time at 10.30am at Cotteridge Quaker (“Friends”) Meeting House. For the first 10 minutes the children and young people join the main meeting for worship (find out more about Quaker worship here).

Our children and young people are aged from zero to about 14 years old. We enjoy a wide range of activities including gardening, crafts, music, cooking and games. We explore issues that we care about like peace and the environment. We children help plan the programme and suggest ideas for activities and topics and help run some of the sessions. Two of us are also on the children’s committee.

Upcoming activities – 2022

Occasionally we go on trips out or visit other local Quaker meetings. On these Sundays there will not be a children’s meeting at Cotteridge.

  • Sunday 25th September – All age meeting for worship at Bournville Meeting House.
  • Saturday and Sunday 29th – 30th October – Canal boat trip

We will not be meeting in the summer holidays. Our first meeting back after the summer holidays will be Sunday 11th September 2022.

We make time each week to share what’s been going on in our lives and think about what’s important to us. We sometimes learn more about Quakers, and think about how we can make the world a better place for everyone.

Parents and carers are very welcome to stay with their children in children’s meeting, especially if it’s their first time or they are younger. If children are happy to be left, then you are welcome to join in our Quaker meeting for worship, or give us your contact details and stay nearby. All of our leaders and helpers are DBS checked.

Youth Group

We have a youth group for children who are aged 10 plus. This meets on Saturday evenings once a month at different Quaker meeting houses in the area. Activities include games, barbeques, talks, bonfires and trips out.

If you’d like to join us, you’re very welcome to come along any Sunday morning.  If you’d like to check what we have planned, or find out more about the youth group, please email cqmclerk@gmail.com.
