Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House

On Sunday, 1st May we’re gathering for cake, stories, music, creativity and connection with God and one another.

Our theme for May is ACTS OF LOVE – How God loves us and we love others.

To start off our series, this Sunday we look at Jesus feeding people and as our own act of love and expression of worship we have the opportunity to do the same.

You are invited to stick around the gathering and have a meal with us – the pizza is on us (including vegan and GF options).

We will ALSO be accepting donations for a local food distribution hub both THIS Sunday and at our Real Talk gathering later in the month.

Here’s a helpful list of what is most needed as donations right now as well as links to accessing help with food locally:

Join us at 2:45 for a 3pm start at Edgbaston Quaker Meeting House (Five Ways). Scroll down for directions and details.

We will be livestreaming our worship gathering to Facebook Live and YouTube for those not joining us in person.


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.

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.
