UPCOMING EVENTS:

"BRING A FRIEND TO MEETING" Sunday 30th October 2022

* Are you curious about what Quakers actually do in meeting for worship?

* How does it feel to be in a (mostly) silent gathering?

* What do Quakers believe about God, Spirit, Light or the "whatever you call it"? 

 

Why not join us on "Bring a Friend to meeting" Sunday? A great opportunity for those new to Quaker worship to join us and experience it for themselves. Whilst new comers are welcome any Sunday, this is designed to be more accessible for new comers with 45 minutes of silent gathering, some personal testimony and time for questions - all followed by coffee and cake! No hard sell, just a friendly welcome to everyone.     

 

 

Death Cafe - "Tea and Mortality" Thursday 8th December 2.00-3.30pm (and then last Thursday of Month from Jan 2023) 

Informal conversations around death and dying, based on the international Death Cafe model.

 

See Death Cafe page for details. 

DARLINGTON QUAKERS AND THE FRIENDS MEETING HOUSE

 

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.
