Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Durham Friends Meeting

Welcome to the Durham Friends Meeting (Quaker)

  • We are a community of people who gather for worship and fellowship on Sunday mornings, and who attempt to carry the experience of spiritual centeredness and guidance into their lives during the week.

  • All are welcome to join us as we worship in the traditional “unprogrammed” manner of Friends.  We have no ritual, liturgy, creed, sermon or prepared music.

Forum on First Day April 24th:  An Introduction to Experiment With Light

Be still awhile from thy own thoughts, searching, seeking, desires, and imaginations, and be stayed in the principle of God in thee...And thou being come to the principle of God [within], which hath been transgressed [by thee], it will keep thee humble; and [to] the humble God will teach his way, which is peace...                                                             George Fox’s advice to Elizabeth Cromwell Claypole, 1658:
