Quakers in Britain
'Quakers' is the name often used for the Religious Society of Friends. Although we have our roots in Christianity, we find meaning and value in the teachings and insights of other faiths and traditions.
Meeting for worship brings Quakers together in silence so we can still our minds and open our hearts and lives to God. Everyone is welcome to join us.
We believe our faith should translate into action. To help guide and challenge us to live this way, Quakers have a number of 'testimonies'.
Quakers began in the 17th Century, after the end of the English Civil War. It was a time of unrest and change in England. Quakers were one of several groups who challenged many of the beliefs and ideas of the time.
