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.

How to find us

Darlington Friends Meeting House is located in the town centre. Skinnergate is pedestrianised between 10am and 5pm each weekday and 10.30 -5pm on Sundays, but ample parking is available nearby.


When the front door to the building is not open, access is via the rear door - walk through the passageway next door to the Footprints bookshop and then curve round to your left past the fire escape.
