Welcome

There are five Quaker meetings in the York area.

Three of these are in York itself, the largest based in Friargate. Around York, members of the Religious Society of Friends (commonly known as Quakers) worship and work together as York Area Meeting.

Our Quaker Meeting Houses are not only home to thriving Quaker meetings, but also a community resource – meeting places for many community groups and organisations.

Quakers share a way of life rather than a set of beliefs.

We seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us.
