What do we believe?
One of our fundamental beliefs is that ‘there is that of God in everyone’ which implies no discrimination on grounds of gender or sexuality, youth or age, race, ethnicity or nationality, religion, social status, intellect or fame.
Our focus is on our experience rather than written statements of belief. Our sense of community does not depend on professing identical beliefs, but from worshipping, sharing and working together.
Our religious experience leads us to place a special value on truth, equality, simplicity and peace. These testimonies, as they are known, are lived rather than written. They lead Quakers to translate their faith into action by working locally and globally for social justice, to support peacemakers and care for the environment.
