Linked arms

Holding each other in the Light

We hold Friends, neighbours and all members of our communities in the Light.

"We are all the poorer for the crushing of one man, since the dimming of the Light anywhere darkens us all."

Michael Sorensen, 1986

Welcome to the web site of Quakers (Religious Society of Friends)
in Mid-Essex

Quakers share a way of life, not a set of beliefs.

Our unity is based on silent worship, where we seek a communal stillness.

Beginning with stillness our faith becomes action.

The Quaker commitment to peace, equality, simplicity, sustainability and truth arises from the conviction that love is at the hearth of existence and that all human beings are unique and equal.

We meet for worship at four locations:

  • Billericay
  • Brentwood*
  • Chelmsford
  • Leigh-on-Sea
  • Maldon

*Meeting House is in Shenfield

Our Meetings for Worship are mostly held on Sunday mornings, and last for about an hour.

For details of locations and times of meetings, see local Quaker Meetings on menu bar.

All are welcome to join us for Meeting for Worship at any of these locations. There is no ceremony, and we are not led by a priest or minister. In the stillness we each seek our personal spiritual truth. Anyone may feel moved to share their insights with the others present.

We look forward to meeting you, answering any questions that you may have, and sharing some refreshments after our Meeting for Worship.
