Quaker Quest

Quaker Quest Events

Quaker Quest evenings have been a feature of Quaker life since 2002. They are intended to help you find out more about Quakers in an informal and relaxed setting.

They are open to anyone. You won’t be asked to pay. And we never ask anyone, under any circumstances, to sign up to a set of beliefs.

A typical Quaker Quest session offers:

  • A friendly, informal and relaxed welcome with light refreshments
  • Short talks from three Quakers who share their personal faith experiences
  • Discussion in which everyone can explore spiritual issues
  • An experience of Quaker worship
  • An opportunity to ask questions and talk over any spiritual matters

Venues of current and future Quaker Quest sessions can be searched here.

For an account of what a Guardian journalist who describes herself as ‘an atheist who abhors proselytising’ thought of her Quaker Quest experience (January 2010) please follow the link below:

The evenings are offered in cycles – perhaps four or six consecutive sessions at any given time – usually once a week. But they aren’t a course. You don’t have to go to all of them or sign up to anything. You are welcome to come and go as you please.

Typical sessions might be: Quakers and Worship, Quakers and Simplicity, Quakers and God, Quakers and Peace, Quakers and Equality.
