North Somerset Area Meeting consists of the membership of the local Quaker meetings at Clevedon, Sidcot and Weston-super-Mare and it owns those three meeting houses. There are also Quaker meetings held monthly at Claverham Meeting House (owned by the Claverham Meeting House Trust).  North Somerset Area Meeting meets four times a year at weston-super-Mare (February), Clevedon (May), Sidcot (August), Claverham (November). Attenders and enquirers not in membership can attend with permission from the Clerk of Area Meeting. The next meeting of Area Meeting is at Clevedon Meeting House, Sunday 14th May 2017 at 1.30 pm.
