Our starting point:
- There is that of God in everyone.
- Spiritual awareness is accessible to everyone of any religion or none.
- No one faith can claim to have the final revelation or monopoly of truth.
- A union of hearts between faiths can help prevent misunderstandings.
- We do not seek to ‘convert’ one another but to share spiritual insights.
- We seek to foster tolerance and mutual understanding between faiths.
- We recognise the direct, unmediated communication between an individual and the creative source of love, light and life.
- We understand the primacy of the Inward Light over Scripture.
- We appreciate peace as a process to engage with one another rather than a goal to be reached.
- We search our hearts and are seekers after Truth.
- We delight in the diversity of faiths and beliefs and warmly welcome Quakers and non-Quakers to join with us.
The humble, meek, merciful, just, pious, and devout souls are everywhere of one religion; and when death has taken off the mask they will know one another, though the divers liveries they wear here makes them strangers.
(William Penn, 1693, a Quaker and founder of Pennsylvania)

People of all faiths and none are most welcome.
The Republic of Heaven: Humanism & Quakers
David is a Quaker Humanist, a journalist and broadcaster. Tonight David will be exploring current debates on the historical Jesus and rethinking beliefs of God in different faith traditions. He will draw on his books ‘Who on earth was Jesus’ and ‘The trouble with God’.
Breakthrough to Unity: Quakers and Mystics
Roswitha has done much work on conflict resolution in Chechnya and Serbia. Tonight she will explore early and contemporary mystics and examine the roles played by surrender, love, authority and priesthood.
After a recent journey to Santiago de Compostella, Harvey hopes to reflect on the nature of pilgrimage exploring the paradoxes and the sense of ‘not-knowingness’ in his life. This is a chance for all of us to explore the sacred and otherness in our lives. Come and join us!
