About Quakers

 What do Quakers believe? 


The Quaker way has its roots in Christianity.

Friends also find meaning and value in the teachings of all faiths and acknowledge that ours is not the only way.

In the silent hour of a Quaker meeting, each person tries to draw closer to what the Spirit of God is for them.

As this shared experience deepens, anyone present may be inspired to speak.

There is no pre-arranged programme, and no one directs what happens.

Our simple form of worship is over 350 years old and is still as relevant today as it was when it began.

You are welcome to experience it for yourself wherever you may be on your spiritual journey- whether committed Christian, agnostic, or questioning sceptic.
