About Quakers

Quakers believe there is something of God in everyone. We don't offer neat creeds or doctrine. Instead, we try to help each other work out how we should live. All people are welcome and accepted at a Quaker meeting, irrespective of their background.

Quakerism is almost 400 years old. It's the common name for the Religious Society of Friends. It grew out of Christianity and today we also find meaning and value in other faiths and traditions. We recognise that there's something transcendent and precious in every person. Different Quakers use different words to describe this, but we all believe we can be in contact with it and encounter something beyond our individual selves.

Our Meetings for Worship take place online each Sunday 10.45am - 11.45am and on Wednesdays 12.30am - 1.00pm. When possible, we also meet in person in the Goat Lane Meeting House.

On the second Sunday in every month we have a children’s meeting.

Why not come along and experience a Quaker meeting for yourself?

You can learn more about Quakers from our national website.


We also run a Quaker Quest programme twice each year. These provide an opportunity for you to meet with Quakers over five consecutive Monday evenings. These informal sessions give you the opportunity to get to know us and better understand what being a Quaker means. The next Quaker Quest programme starts on Monday 4th January 2021. You can find out more about Quaker Quest here.
