Quakers are a religious organisation dating from the seventeenth century. Its roots are in Christianity and today Quakers are a broad-based group of those who believe that there is that of God in everyone which we can come to recognise and learn from.

Amidst the pressure and noise of life, there is in silent worship a healing and creative power. We sit quietly in a circle, coming to stillness in our minds and openness in our hearts. We believe there is something of God within us all and when we hear  a revelation in our hearts that is helpful to us and maybe to others we stand to share it.
