Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House

On the first Sunday of April we’re planning a very special gathering! We’re moving out to our lovely garden for a Celebration of New Life with an Easter egg hunt, cake, music and a special ‘Naming Ceremony’ to celebrate with those who have new names!
Bring your own picnic blanket – we’ll provide the cake and drinks.
This season is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and new life for all.
If you have a new name that you want to celebrate with us on Easter Sunday, get in touch with us at Whether or not you are a regular part of our IGB community or are a person of faith or not, we invite you to come and celebrate your new name with us.
(In the event of rain, we’ll move indoors – but let’s pray for a sunny day).
The Quaker Meeting House is on the Five Ways end of City Centre at the corner of St James Road and George Road. Enter through gate on George Road and you’ll find a lovely garden and a cosy vibe.
There is ample free parking on George Road. (It is just outside the clean air zone).
Five Ways Trains Station is just 500m away.
Numbers 1 and 8 and the Harborne and Hagley Road bus routes stop near by at the Big Morrisons at Five Ways which is nearby.
The building itself is wheelchair accessible and has accessible toilets.
Any questions can be directed to
We’re really happy to do what we can to make you feel welcome and included – if you are worried about getting to the venue from Moor Street/ New Street give us a shout!
We gather as IGB each Sunday at 3pm, but our gatherings will look a bit different each week. The big news is that from September 2021, most Sundays there will now be an option to meet both in person or online in some way.
Here’s the pattern of what to expect each month:
1st Sunday -Worship Gathering at the Meeting House and Livestreamed to FB Live & YouTube- Music, stories, a spiritual, reflection, music & cake. Pub meet up afterwards.
2nd Sunday – Live Online (only)
3rd Sunday – Various activities in collaboration with others – Open Table Birmingham meeting in North Brum. 5:15 Neurodiverse Spirituality Zoom Workshop & Discussion.
4th Sunday – Real Talk & Afternoon Tea at the Meeting House & Livestreamed to FB Live & Youtube with Zoom hybrid discussion option. Pub meet up afterwards.
5th Sunday (when there is one!) – A Special Event.
About Inclusive Gathering Birmingham …
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a diverse church gathered together by a common dream: to become a truly inclusive faith community, where doubt and difference are a welcome part of our journey together toward Jesus. We believe that the way of Jesus leads us to the wild, radical idea that true spiritual community can be formed based on who is INCLUDED, not by who is EXCLUDED. We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong. That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.
