ABOUT QUAKERS

Quakers do not have any hierarchy: there are no priests or paid ministers. Neither do Quakers have any creed, in other words there is no set of beliefs on which all Quakers agree. Many Members of Westminster Quakers consider themselves to be Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, etc. and many do not; quite a few Members consider themselves to be atheists.

However, there are concerns on which Quakers are in unity, resulting in testimonies on such topics as simplicity, equality, truth & integrity, and peace:

• There is something sacred in every person

• All people are equal before God*

• Religion is about the whole of life

• We meet in stillness to discover a deeper sense of God’s* presence

• True religion leads to respect for the earth and all life upon it

• Each person is unique, precious, a child of God*

*whatever your understanding of the word 'God' may be - Quakers welcome the diversity of this understanding in each and every person.


These testimonies lead many Quakers to take social action. For more information about all aspects of Quaker life, please see: www.quaker.org.uk

There is no charge for becoming (or resigning as) a formal Member of the Quakers, but this is only open to regular Attenders.

There is NO CHARGE for attending any of the meetings; all are welcome to attend.
