Who are we?
The History of the Quakers goes back to the 17th Century but we have come a long way since then and we are a very forward thinking and modern community. That’s not to say we don’t value the traditions we just place them in a modern context.
Quakers share a way of life, not a set of beliefs. We seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us. We meet together for worship in our local meeting which are inclusive and open to all.
We do not seek to convert anybody, it has never been a part of what we do. So why not come along to meet us or join us in worship?
