Local Quaker Meetings in Hertford and Hitchin Area

About Quakers in Britain and around the World

Quaker faith springs from the experience that each one of us can have a direct relationship with the Divine. Quakers find that by meeting together for communal worship we are empowered to find peace and strength for work in the world.

Quakers are members of the Religious Society of Friends and hence they often refer to each other as 'Friends'. More than twenty seven thousand people attend Quaker meetings for worship in the UK. These quiet times of seeking the presence of God are held regularly in about 500 places, many of them Friends' Meeting Houses.
