About Quakers

Quakers believe there is that of God in everyone and that the experience of a spiritual life is open to all.

Quakerism, the common name for the Religious Society of Friends, is nearly 400 years old. It grew out of Christianity and today we also find meaning and value from other faiths and traditions.  Quakers don't use traditional religious structures or paid ministers. We share responsibility for what we do because everyone has a valuable contribution to make.

Worship is at the heart of what it means to be a Quaker. Meeting for Worship brings Quakers together in silence so we can still our minds and open our hearts and lives to God. Find out more about how we worship here. Everyone is welcome to join us.

The Quaker way is a path, not a destination and we don't offer neat creeds or doctrine. Instead, we try to help each other work out how we should live.

We believe that our faith is expressed in action and we try to live by our Testimonies - our values. Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Sustainability. The process of living out our faith is often called Quaker Witness
