Quaker Info

Quakers share a way of worship and a way of life rather than a set of beliefs. We seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us. Quakers do not have a set creed. The Religious Society of Friends (commonly known as Quakers) is a small group of around 25,000 worshippers in the UK, but part of a worldwide fellowship. The bedrock of the Quaker way is the meeting for worship. We seek a gathered still ness, where we can be open to inspiration. During our meetings for worship some may feel moved to speak. Anyone can do so, as all are considered equal. if you have never been to a meeting for worship and would like to know more, see under 'Visitor info'.
