Welcome

This is the website of London Quakers: a resource for Quakers in and around London, and for people interested in finding out more about Quakerism.

London Quakers

Maybe you have some involvement with Quakers elsewhere in the world or in the UK, maybe you have some involvement with London Quakers already. Our aim is to keep London Quakers in touch with one another across the boundaries of the seven Area Meetings, and to give London Quakers a voice in addressing the wider world. There are about forty meetings across London. Most meet for worship each Sunday, some more often, some less often. We aim to be able to tell you something about each meeting in that meeting’s own words. Any of them will be glad to see you whenever you come.

Mailing List

Please sign up for our mailing list, and we'll send you details of London Quaker events, approximately once a month.  We will not share this list with others, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
