The Grace Geraldine Brown Bequest
Quaker Meetings for Worship are held in a variety of locations each Sunday and last for about one hour. You don't need to be a member to come along, anyone is welcome, regardless of their faith or belief.
Quakerism began in England over 350 years ago, but it didn’t end there. There are Quakers here in South Australia at the beginning of the 21st century.
Although Christian in origin, the Quaker approach is experiential, has no priests and is free of doctrines and rituals. What we have is a belief that each person has something of the divine within them. This leads to a sense of reverence for all humankind and for the planet we inhabit.
Quakers seek to express in their lives principles of simplicity, equality, compassion and peace, based on a conviction of the presence of the Spirit in every person.
We are probably best known for our silent, meditative worship and our work
for peace and social justice. Our worship isn’t always silent and this
site will allow you to find out more about that and other things to do with
Quakers here and elsewhere and to make contact with us if you wish.
