What is a Quaker Meeting?Quaker meetings last for an hour in silent worship or occasional spontaneous ministry. We believe in Equality, Simplicity, Truth, Integrity and Peace. There are no ministers, sacraments or creeds and we do not believe in proactive recruitment or evangelising. Attenders are very welcome and, while we are very happy to answer questions, you will not be approached or pressured in any way to join the Society. We respect the beliefs of others even if we do not share them all, preferring instead to seek out what we refer to traditionally as 'that of God in everyone'.
Meetings have been compared with and are seen by many as a form of meditation or mindfulness.
