Although Quakers have been around since the 1650s, our faith is modern and contemporary in its approach.
There are Quaker meetings all over Britain where more than 20,000 people of all ages and backgrounds worship in stillness to experience the divine directly within themselves, in their relationships with others and with the world around them. Quakerism is a way of life built upon principles of truth, equality, peace and simplicity rather than a written set of beliefs and Quakers have a long-held commitment to putting their faith into direct action in the world.
Quaker meetings offer a place where people can find a real sense of community and are free to challenge, question and explore their own beliefs, values and ideas. Many Quakers describe it as a spiritual home – a place of deep connections; a group of people bound together by an awareness of the sacred in all things and a desire to change the world for the better.
You do not have to be a Quaker to attend a meeting. All are welcome.
