In Britain there are about 480 Quaker Meetings (Local Meetings) organised into Area Meetings which are roughly half the size of counties. Oxford & Swindon Area Meeting is one of 70 Area Meetings . Area Meeting is the principal meeting for church affairs, and attendance is an opportunity to share in our joint responsibilities for the business of the Society in the Area.

The treasurer, Jennifer Barraclough can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org and the Membership Clerk is Paul Wadsley.
