We do this by organising live events, publishing books about Quakerism for newcomers, making videos of Quakers talking about their faith, and doing anything else we can to help people find out about us.
Quakers are a religious group who have been around for about 360 years. The stillness that is at the core of our worship, along with the spiritual and social values we have derived from it, are as needed today as ever.
We will be as interested to learn how you feel about them as we will be in meeting you.
Quaker Quest aims to help you find out about the Quaker way of life. We have found that people enquiring about us want to experience Quaker worship, hear why being a quaker matters to us, talk to each other and us about their own experience or spirituality and get an idea what sort of people we are.
Quaker Quest evenings are open to anyone. You won’t be asked to pay. And we never require ourselves or anyone else to ‘sign up’ to a set of beliefs.

At Quaker Quest we believe that the Quaker way is a spiritual path for our time, a path that is simple, radical and contemporary. A typical Quaker Quest offers several sessions on various themes. You can attend any or all of them as you wish. At the moment it is only Zoom Quaker Quest that is available. Please refer to the "about" page of this website for details.
A standard Quaker Quest session offers:
A typical Quaker Quest evening includes refreshments, six seven-minute contributions from three Quaker speakers, some time for discussion/questions and a half-hour period of Quaker worship. We ask the speakers to address the topic from their own experience.
