Derby Meeting House

Derby Friends Meeting House, St. Helen’s St., DERBY, DE1 3GY

Meetings for Worship create a space for gathered stillness. Together we can listen to the promptings of truth & love in our hearts. The silence may be broken if someone feels called to say something to deepen and enrich the worship. You may find it is a time of insight, healing and calm.

About Quakers

Quakerism is rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus, whilst being open to insights from other religions and philosophies. Christianity is not only a set of beliefs but also a way of life. We try to practise our faith through our ‘testimonies’ to peace, equality, truth and simplicity. The best introduction to Quaker thinking and practise is through Quaker Faith and Practice see ‘Quaker Faith and Practice’.

Rooms are available for hire.
