"Live adventurously. When choices arise, do you take the way that offers the fullest opportunity for the use of your gifts in the service of God and the community?"
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.
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.
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.
We are busy planning our programme for 2015. The courses, which carry a fee must be booked in advance, but all other events are open to all, inside or outside London with no booking and no charge.
