About Quakers

Our Worship

Quakers share 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.  These direct encounters with the Divine are where Quakers find meaning and purpose.

A Quaker Meeting is based on silence, we seek a communal, gathered stillness.  The silence may be broken if someone present feels called to say something that will deepen and enrich the worship, something anyone can do, as all are considered equal.

Our Quaker faith should lead to action.  Throughout our personal lives, we face the challenge to live with greater love and integrity.  Being part of a supportive community helps us to do this.

We have ‘testimonies’ to peace, truth, simplicity, sustainability, and social justice.

Please see ‘Faith in Action’ page for some examples.
