Brighton Quaker Meeting
Brighton & Hove Quakers and the 2015 Election
We, as Quakers, have never been afraid to look for the non-violent resolution of conflicts, respect for all human beings and for simple sustainable living.
Because we are so deeply concerned Brighton & Hove Quakers have written to all our parliamentary candidates about such subjects as the £100bn to be spent on Trident, the growing gap between the poorest and richest in our country, climate change and militarisation of our schools.
The home of Quakers in Brighton
Quakerism is a way of life rooted in a transforming experience of the Divine. From this we seek to live out our principles of truth, peace, simplicity and equality, recognising that of God in everyone.
Our Meeting offers a place of welcome, encounter and spiritual exploration.
At the heart of Quakerism is our worship. Our main Meeting for Worship in Brighton is at 10.30am every Sunday. It lasts an hour, and is mainly silent worship although people may stand and speak if moved to do so.
