We do not share a fixed set of beliefs and you do not need to be a Quaker to worship with us at one of our meetings. Quakers' faith is expressed through action and we are most widely known for our work for peace. More...
Quakers worship at local meetings. These usually happen once a week and we meet in silence. There are no paid ministers to run the meetings and ministry is given by anybody who feels moved to do so.
Quaker meetings are open to all, but we do not seek to convert anybody, it has never been a part of what we do. So why not request more information or find a Quaker meeting near you and come along to meet us or join us in worship.
