Birmingham Friends Meeting

Welcome to Birmingham Friends Meeting

We are an active, caring community of families and individuals of all ages who come together to worship in the tradition of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Each Sunday we gather in Meeting for Worship to listen for the still, small voice of God stirring within us. Meeting for Worship includes our children for the first 30 minutes after which they attend First Day (Sunday) School. Nursery care is available for younger children.

We are guided in our lives by our Quaker Testimonies on Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship. We welcome those who wish to join us.

In addition to the exhibit, the Museum has created a guide to sites in the area associated with the artist and his work.
