About Quakers

Quaker Worship

Quakers are an open minded spiritual community. Without creeds or dogmas we seek to live our lives according to testimonies of peace, equality, simplicity, truth and respect for the earth. Our worship together is based on silent waiting.

Worship is at the heart of what it means to be a Quaker. Meeting for worship brings Quakers together in stillness so we can quiet our minds and open our hearts and lives to God. Everyone is welcome to join us.

Quaker worship (we call it ‘meeting for worship’) normally lasts for an hour. We enter and sit in stillness and waiting. This stillness gives us space and time to listen and reflect. We don’t have songs, set prayers or talks you might find in other places of worship. We know that some people may find the silence uncomfortable, but it can be an opportunity to come closer to God.
