Discover more

There are several ways of discovering more about Quakers.


We are offering a programme of learning about Quakerism, starting in the new year.

What are the four Quaker testimonies? What is the origin of ‘Hope so’ as assent to a suggested minute in Meeting for Worship for Business? What drove the faith of early Quakers? How do we discern whether it is right to give spoken ministry in Meeting? If any of these questions leaves you puzzled or curious, then Elders and Overseers may have the answer for you (or maybe it’s better to say ‘a partial answer’…)

Six different topics will be explored for an hour after Meeting on every third Sunday, and the idea is that anyone can attend any of the sessions; it’s not necessary to attend all of them. Many of us feel that it’s quite hard to understand some of our practices and tenets, and even if we’ve been attending Meeting for years there are unexpected holes in our knowledge. If this strikes a chord, come along!
