This is the website of Central England Quakers: a resource for Quakers in and around Coventry, Warwick, Walsall, Stourbridge, Birmingham and other parts of the West Midlands, and for people interested in finding out more about Quakerism. As well as keeping local Quakers in touch with one another across the West Midlands, we hope to share what we do and what we believe, our faith and practice, with others.
Quakers in Central England
There are seventeen Quaker Meetings in the Area Meeting and any of them will be glad to see you whenever you visit. Most meet for worship each Sunday, some more often, some less often. You will find information about the times of each Meeting for Worship and where to find them here. There are also Quaker Projects based in Birmingham, including Northfield Ecocentre, West Midlands Quaker Peace Education Project and The Priory Rooms.
New to Quakers?
Our New to Quakers page briefly introduces Quakers: what we believe, how we worship. Our “links” page will take you to more Quaker related sites as will the London Quakers Links page. These links will guide you to sources of more detailed information about Quakers including an introductory online course Becoming Friends.
Quaker Quest explores the practice of silent worship as a spiritual path for our time, one that leads to peace and social justice. Discover more about the Quaker way through a series of informal presentations, discussions and questionings with local Quakers.
