Welcome

Welcome to the website of Bamford Quaker Community.  We hope you enjoy looking around the site.  For information about the Community look at the About Us pages.  Or watch a short YouTube video.

We run a varied programme of retreats and events throughout the year, as well as offering self-catering breaks and hosting a wide variety of groups.

So In 2016, we offer again our Family Summer Camp, now in its third year, and our practical weeks working on our growing areas and woodland; as well as new retreats. These range from “Poetry and Walking” to “When my time is up” and  “The World in our hearts”

Please look at our Retreats and Events 2016  page for dates and details..

We welcome people for self-catering stays and for our Working Saturdays which we have now moved to the third Saturday of each month. This can always be extended and become a Work and Worship weekend by staying overnight and joining us for Hope Valley Meeting for Worship which we host at the Community at 10.45 – 11.45 every Sunday. However the Working Saturday on 20th August 2016 is only open to Associate Members.

For groups we offer a low cost yet comfortable, beautifully located and easy to get to venue for work or relaxation. A group can either cater for themselves in our spacious and well-equipped kitchen or enjoy being cooked for with delicious vegetarian meals.

We look forward to welcoming both new faces and old acquaintances in 2016
