Quakers stand alongside victims of racist policies

Quakers in Britain have responded to the global unease about recent political developments around the world with a clear statement asserting that, “Humanity needs leaders of integrity and conscience, ready to be held to account by individuals and institutions, national and international."

“There can be no peace without justice; no love without trust; and no unity without equality. Our faith urges us to welcome the stranger as our equal and friend, feed those who are hungry and shelter those who are homeless, needy and frightened.

“Alongside Quakers in the USA, and their American Friends Service Committee, we stand with those whose lives are blighted by racist, discriminatory policies and those whose faith is denigrated by association with a tiny violent minority."

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.
