What  Do Quakers Believe?

Always a difficult one to answer! - Quakers share a way of life, not a set of beliefs. Their unity is based on shared understanding and a shared practice of silent worship, where they seek a communal stillness.

Quakers seek to experience God directly, within themselves and in their relationships with others and the world around them. However, they do not all agree what they mean by God, and not all are even comfortable using the term. They meet together in worship in local meetings, which are open to all who wish to attend.

Quakers try to live with honesty and integrity. This means speaking truth to all, including people in positions of power.

The Quaker commitment to peace arises from the conviction that love is at the heart of existence and that all human beings are a unique and equal.

This leads Quakers to put their faith into action by working locally and globally to change the systems that cause injustice and violent conflict.

Quakers try to live simply. They are concerned about the excesses and unfairness of our consumer society and the unsustainable use of natural resources.

Quakers have been meeting in Bridgend, in South Wales for over fifty years. Each Sunday at 10.45am members and visitors, children and adults, meet for silent worship at our Meeting House, 87 Park Street near the centre of Bridgend.  

Children and young people are welcome and separate activities for different age groups are available. If you'd like to experience Quaker worship, or think this might be the place to pursue your spiritual journey, please just come on Sunday, or if you prefer  contact us via email.

The Meeting House is on the right hand side as you go  down the hill into Bridgend and almost opposite the entrance to the former Coed Parc Reference Library.

The building is clearly signed as the Quaker Meeting House, and as Bridgend Carers Centre (who are our tenants in part of the building).

Sunday 10.45am - 11.45am followed by refreshments.

Second Tuesday of every month 7.00pm - 7.45pm
