Quakers in Brighton

Meeting for Worship

Meeting for Worship is a shared spiritual experience central to Quakerism. For Quakers, this shared experience is more important than written texts, and this was the case from the very beginning of the Quaker movement in 17th century England. Our worship sessions last about an hour, and are mainly silent although people may speak if moved to do so.

During the Covid pandemic, we are holding "blended" meetings with some people attending online using Zoom and others attending in person.

As well as the Sunday Meeting for Worship 1030-1130, we are also holding the following online meetings:

    • “Coffee Morning” at 11am every Friday

    • Young Quakers (18-30ish) at 6.30pm every Tuesday. 

    • Children’s Meeting once a fortnight.

    • Meditation with the Quaker Chaplain at Sussex University every day from 1-1.30pm.

From 3 November we will also offer a Zoom meeting for worship 8.30 to 9pm every Wednesday.
