About us

Quakers believe that everyone can have a direct relationship with God. We find that this relationship can best be experienced if we meet in silence, with nothing pre-planned.

Meeting for Worship couldn't be simpler: you go in and sit down in a plain room with other Quakers and settle into silence, a silence which can become very deep and powerful. After a time, someone may feel inspired to stand up and speak briefly in their own words, or pray, or read from the Bible or some other book, before the meeting settles back into silent waiting.

A Meeting for Worship usually lasts an hour.

The North East Thames area covers the following six meetings:

Bethnal Green     Epping    Harlow    Romford    Walthamstow    Wanstead

You are most welcome at any of these Quaker Meetings and can can find out more about each by clicking on the link above or following the “Our meetings” link.

Area Meeting documents are available on the intranet. For details of how to register to gain access, please ask you Local Meeting or email website@netaqm.org.uk

London Young Adult Quaker Meeting, a Quaker gathering for 18 to 35(ish) year olds in and around London.  (The age restriction is not strict.)  Quakers, the Quaker-ish, and the Quaker-curious are welcome.  No previous experience of Quakerism necessary.  

Anyone is welcome to join for socialising from 5pm and worship from 5:30pm at Westminster Quaker Meeting House every month on the first and third Sunday.  On months with a fifth Sunday, LYAQM holds a themed discussion at the same time and place.



Nearly one hundred friends from across London began the process of getting to know each other better when they met online and in person at Friends House on Saturday 8th June.  The next meeting of Quakers from the seven area meetings in London is on Saturday October 5th, again online and at Friends House.
