Response to Covid-19

In line with Government advice and guidance from Britain Yearly Meeting, we are making changes to the advertised times of our Meetings for Worship as follows:


We are currently holding Meetings for Worship in person and online from 10:30 to 11:30 each Sunday morning, followed by a period of fellowship. We ask people attending in person at the Meeting House to wear masks and respect social distancing, if possible. For further information about online worship, please contact quakers105@gmail.com


Meeting for Worship will be held in the Meeting House on the 4th Sunday of the month starting from 24th April.


We are meeting in the Meeting House 10.30-11.30 for 'blended' meetings which will can also be attended via Zoom and an audio tape will be available afterwards. We are currently holding our Wednesday meetings on Zoom only, 12.30-1.00 pm.


We are holding Meeting for Worship on the first and third Sunday of each month at 10.45 for an hour. We are meeting in person in line with current guidance.

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

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.

(Brentwood Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.)

Maldon meeting also holds 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.
