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.
