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.
Quakerism is more a way of life than a dogma or creed and we believe that each person can have a direct experience with God. This experience cannot easily be described in words and we feel it is important that each of us uses words that are meaningful to us personally.
Our experience is that the Quaker way affects the whole of our lives. It leads us, individually and together, to work towards a more just and peaceful world, and a more sustainable lifestyle.
Meeting for Worship is a central part of our practice. Our meetings are based on silent waiting and listening, and the silence can be very moving. Out of this silence someone may feel inspired to speak or read a short passage. These words are brief and may be helpful to others present.
We invite everyone to join us:
More information about Quaker faith and practice can be found on the national Quaker website: www.quaker.org.uk.
