Quakers for climate justice

Quakers call on Government to tackle climate change

The Clean Growth Strategy, has been hailed by the government as an ambitious plan to cut emissions between the years 2023-2032.

Yet the strategy reveals that new policies will fail to cut emissions in line with the UK's legally-binding carbon allowances for this period, relying on “flexibilities" within UK climate law.

It is a move that has been criticised by the government's own advisory Committee on Climate Change.

With the government risking its target to cut carbon in line with even 2°C, Quakers fear the UK could undermine global commitment to the Paris climate deal.

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

We meet for worship at four locations:

  • Billericay
  • Brentwood*
  • Chelmsford
  • Maldon

*Meeting House is in Shenfield

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

Both Maldon and Billericay meetings also hold a mid-week meeting.

For location 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 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.
