Learn about Quakers
Quakers have no theology, no written creed, no sacred books, no preachers, no sacraments. In a Quaker meeting we have no priests or ministers nor a liturgy.
At the heart of our faith is the spirit of God as understood by you personally, (others may use words like ‘Truth’, ‘the Light Within’, the ‘Divine’) and which is present in every person from any background, culture or faith.
During our meetings we sit in silence. Maybe you may be moved to offer your personal ministry guided the Light within you. Ministry is typically very short and is offered for everyone to contemplate. Others may add their ministry, not as a conversation but as their own personal insight.
You will hopefully find peace and quiet and love; friendship and fellowship and sharing; a time for listening to God’s message, and sharing it with others
WHAT IS A QUAKER?
