Resources for meetings
Quaker Centre resources for meetings consists of leaflets, books, tapes, posters, DVDs, packs and other resources for use by Quaker meetings for outreach, study groups, children and young people's meetings and all ages together.
You are welcome to use this space for quiet worship, either by yourself or joining with others. Meeting for worship is held every weekday 12.30–1pm, on Thursdays at 6.30pm, and on Sundays at 11am.
In the stillness of a Quaker meeting each person tries to draw closer to God, whatever their understanding of God may be.
During this quiet time anyone present may feel led to express a thought or feeling they are experiencing. There is no prearranged programme and no person directing what happens. This simple way of worship is modern yet over 350 years old. It is open to anyone who will join the silence.
There is step-free access to the Quaker Centre via the main garden entrance. There is also a stepped entrance on Euston Road leading directly into the Quaker Centre – this entrance has 8 steps and handrails along both sides, although the steps are quite steep. Find out more about accessibility at Friends House (offsite link).
