Quaker faith

Our Quaker faith springs from the belief that each one of us can have a direct relationship with the Divine. We find that by meeting together for communal worship we are empowered to find peace and strength for work in the world.

DoveQuaker witness

Since our foundation in the 1600s in England, Quakers have tried to make a practical witness to our religious convictions. Quakers are especially active in peace work, human rights and social reform. Go to the  Faith and action section for more about this work.
