About Quakers

At the heart of Quakerism is our worship. We come together in stillness and silence, to open our hearts and lives to God. All are welcome to join us in worship.

There are Quaker meetings all over Britain which 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 work together for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.Quaker-families.jpg

From this shared experience, they seek to live lives built on principles of simplicity, equality, truth and peace. It is a faith and a way of life that is both timeless and contemporary.

Visiting a Quaker meeting near you will give a real insight into their experience of worship and the ways in which it enriches, shapes and transforms their lives.

You do not have to be a Quaker to attend a meeting. All are welcome.
