About Quakers

Quakers share a way of life rather than a set of beliefs. We seek to experience God directly within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us.

Meeting for Worship

The bedrock of the Quaker way is the silent Meeting for Worship. We seek a communal gathered stillness, where we can be open to inspiration from God. During our Meetings for Worship some may feel moved to speak. This is something anyone can do, as we are all considered equal. Meetings can be held anywhere, at any time. We meet every Sunday from 11.00am until 12 midday. You do not have to become a Quaker to attend Quaker meetings which are open to all of us.

Quakers and Christianity

The Quaker way has its roots in Christianity and finds inspiration in the Bible and the life and teachings of Jesus. Quakers also find meaning and value in the teachings of other faiths and acknowledge that ours is not the only way.

Our Quaker community

We meet together for worship and other activities at our local meeting here in Sunderland. These are inclusive and open to all. In our meetings we hope to find acceptance, support, challenge, practical help and a sense of belonging. Our sense of community does not depend on sharing identical beliefs but from worshipping, sharing and working together.

Sharing our experiences

Our focus is on our experience rather than written statements of belief and our collective experience is shared in the book 'Quaker Faith and Practice'. This is an anthology of Quaker insights from the founding of the Religious Society of Friends in the seventeenth century to the present day. It is updated every generation, recognising that our understanding of truth moves on.

Organisation

We believe all people can have a direct relationship with God and that all are equal. We share the responsibility for our Meeting for Worship and all decision making.

Working for a better world

We place a special value on truth, equality, simplicity and peace. These ‘testimonies’ as they are known, are lived rather than written. Read more in ' Faith in Action'.
