Become a friend of the Pales

The Pales is not just an old meeting house, of purely historical and sentimental interest.  Anyone who has visited the site knows that it is a special  place, a ‘thin place’ if you like, where heaven and earth  meet, where those who gather together can consider, along with much else, the way we live today and  the purpose of our journey on this planet. Set in the beautiful landscape of Radnorshire, it is away from the noise and the ‘busyness’ of everyday life, enabling the stillness to invite a sense of the sacred. A visitor recently wrote of her experience: “After just 48 hours here, I am personally aware of the value of time spent in such a peaceful, reflective setting. This is not a value we could or should put a price on, but it feels relevant to our current need for spiritual refreshment in fast-paced, often stressful lives.”

The Pales offered schooling and medical care to the local community for a short period in the 19th century, and continues to be a Meeting House and burial ground for Quakers, as well as providing a venue for creative workshops and other events. However, there is now only a small Quaker community in Radnorshire and there is a need to draw in a new following from the United Kingdom and around the world, and not just Quakers.  It is our mission to  make its restorative benefits  available to increasing numbers of visitors by providing more facilities, including accommodation and  a variety of activities, whilst remaining a place of worship and enrichment. While we plan and execute this vision for developing The Pales into a centre that transforms lives, there is a need to provide for annual costs, which at present are met by Quakers in the Welsh Borders.  Subscriptions from ‘friends of the Pales’ will  help to cover our modest running costs

We hope you will support us financially and welcome assistance in other ways, too.
