Each congregation is a Particular (or Preparative) Meeting; a group of particular meetings forms a Monthly Meeting for the purposes of administration; monthly meetings combine to form a Quarterly Meeting, which is more concerned with spiritual matters.
Finally, at national level, there is a Yearly Meeting. The records on this page are from the Hereford and Mid-Wales Monthly Meeting.
