At Darlington Quaker Meeting you will find a diverse and welcoming community. Our official name is the Religious Society of Friends but we are more commonly known as Quakers or Friends.


Quakerism is rooted in Christianity but, today, Quakers are a broad-based group who believe that there is something of God (or the divine) in everyone.

We invite everyone to join us for worship or just a chat.  Details of our Meetings For Worship and weekly Coffee Morning are on the left of this page.

The Burial Ground

The Historic Burial Ground behind the meeting house is open to visitors to drop in during daylight hours.


Hiring our rooms 

A few Covid protocols remain in place for hirers using our building. Masks are politely requested in public areas to keep everyone safe whilst infection levels remain high but this is no longer a legal requirement. All rooms have still restricted capacities in place.    


We are a busy venue for hiring six days a week. Certain days and times will have limited availability, especially evenings. All general information including access to the read-only booking diary is on the hirers page. Booking requests are by email only.  


If you are interested in hiring space, for a tour of the building or for further information,  please email manager@darlingtonquakers.org
