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.
