About Us

We invite everyone to join us for an hour of worship each Sunday starting from 10:30am, followed by refreshments and conversation. Children have their own adult-led activities in another room.

Our worship is un-programmed, often called silent worship. We wait together listening for ‘that of God within’. During this time if anyone present is moved to speak, they will stand up and give what is known as ‘ministry’.

We follow this with refreshments and an opportunity to chat, for those who want to. Everyone is welcome, and you are free to leave whenever you wish.

Our experience is that the Quaker Way affects the whole of our lives. It leads us, individually and together, to work towards a more just and peaceful world, and a sustainable lifestyle.
