We're a Christian-based religion. We're simple, radical and contemporary.
Quakers, or the Religious Society of Friends. Our official name is Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). We refer to individuals as Quakers or Friends.
Quakers believe that everyone may have direct experience of God, and that there is that of God in everyone. We try to follow Jesus in a loving response to God and to those around us.
Lots of things! We worship together in silence, and we're involved in a variety of projects, charities and campaigns - sometimes individually and sometimes as a group. We are probably best known for our work in prisons, our Quaker schools and our participation in peace and environmental projects.
About 240,000 worldwide and 18,000 in Britain and Ireland. There are also around 8,000 attenders in the UK and Eire. An attender is someone who goes to meeting and gets involved in Quaker activities but is not officially a member.
We don't have services, we have what we call 'meetings for worship'. Click here to find out more about Quaker worship, or you can go here to find out more about meetings in Manchester.
