These groups demonstrate some of the many interests and concerns that Quakers pursue as part of their wider commitment to their faith.* Most groups meet up and organise activities - it's a great way to meet Quakers and make new contacts. Activities are usually open to non-Quakers. Do please contact a group if you are interested to know more about it.
