What are Quakers?

We are a religious group, with roots in a 17th-century offshoot from Protestantism, with a strong social conscience and a pacifist tradition (we won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1947).  We have groups around the world, and are involved in many progressive social and political movements. We were responsible  for starting some famous British businesses, like Barclays Bank, Cadburys chocolate and Clarks shoes. 

Quakers value peace, sustainability, truthfulness, simplicity, equality and  justice

How much does it cost to join?

Who can join?

Anyone. You don’t have to be Quakers already. The great thing about Quakers is that you don’t need to ‘sign up’ to anything in particular. There are Atheist Quakers, Humanist Quakers, Christian Quakers, Buddhist  Quakers, Muslim Quakers, Jewish Quakers and so on and so on. Anyone can come to our events and join in. And anyone can join the society. Maybe even you…

What kind of events will you be holding?

We’re holding a launch event on Weds Oct 3rd that we’re calling ‘Introduction to Quakers (Q101)’, with a panel of speakers, discussion and free, delicious organic food.
