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
