Building closure and coronavirus

Following the public health advice issued on 16 March we have decided to close Friends House and Swarthmoor Hall.

We will be continuing our work to support Quakers, with many staff working from home to deliver our services. We won't be able to do everything as normal, and it will take us little time to get used to working this way, but do continue to contact us through the usual email addresses.

Come to a Quaker meeting

If you would like to talk to somebody about coming along to meeting for worship, you may either:

  • contact a meeting near you directly by using the Find a meeting page
  • speak to somebody at Friends House or on freephone 0808 109 1651 or email

Staff usually work between 9am–5pm. Most have email and voicemail, see staff contact list. Please contact the relevant member of staff for your query when possible.
