Meeting For Worship

Meeting for Worship is a form of communion for Friends in which we gather in silence in order to enter a reality that "is always here within us and beside us, available to us as an invisble stream into which we can step at any time." (William Taber) Worship, then, is not something we do but is a state of consciousness which we enter which brings us into communion with the Living Presence.
Worship is at the heart of Quaker faith and practice. And our research has shown that it is one of the key factors in keeping newcomers attending a new meeting.
