Quakers share a way of life rather than a set of beliefs. Quakers seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us. We meet together for silent worship in local meetings which are open to all.
The Quaker way has its roots in Christianity and finds inspiration in the Bible and the life and teachings of Jesus. Quakers also find meaning and value in the teachings of other faiths; we acknowledge that ours is not the only way.
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.
Since our foundation in the 1600s in England, Quakers have tried to make a practical witness to our religious convictions. Quakers are especially active in peace work, human rights and social reform
Our Quaker faith springs from the belief that each one of us can have a direct relationship with the Divine.
