WELCOME TO

Leicester Quaker Meeting

A warm welcome from Leicester Quaker Meeting.

As Quakers we commit ourselves to a way of worship which allows God to teach and transform us. Over the years Quakers have found that the Spirit, if rightly followed, will lead us into truth, unity and love: we try to put this into practice in every aspect of our lives.

We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government, nor are we for this party nor against the other … but we are for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom, that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness, righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with God, and with one another, that these things may abound.

Edward Burrough, 1659     Quaker faith and practice, 23.11

The Meeting House is now open again for Meeting for Worship on Sunday mornings at 10.30am and on Wednesday at 12.30 – 1.00pm

If you are bringing children to Meeting for Worship please be aware that Childrens’ Committee have indicated that there won’t be a separate Children’s Meeting until further notice. You will need to keep your children with you at all times and children should not be allowed to wander around the Meeting Room. You will be able to sit as a family group.
Thank you for your help in managing to re-establish Meeting for Worship after our long absence of being able to meet together. We do hope you enjoy your time in
the Meeting House, though some of it may seem strange and not what you are used to
