We are people who come together, remotely or in person, at our meeting house in Strawberry Street near the centre of Keighley. Although we are as varied in personality as any other group of people, we hold in common our love for our fellow human beings and a desire to put that love into practice every day.
We have an hour long meeting for worship each Sunday at 10.30 am at the meeting house. We sit in silence. This may be to worship, to think, to pray or meditate and, if we are moved to do so, to share our insights. Our meeting room is arranged in a simple circle of chairs.
A particular theme or concern may emerge, often prompted by events, whether sad or joyous in the world around us. Sometimes we meet online for worship or to consider in depth a particular aspect of what it means to be a Quaker.
We are fortunate in having a beautiful garden at our meeting house which is kept in lovely abundance by our team of gardeners. It is a place of joy and peace for neighbours and friends.
As with other Quakers, we are keen to show and share our faith in our daily life by our actions and by the love we give to the world. We try to make the world a better place by our everyday behaviour and interaction with our neighbours, near and far.
Many of us are active in local, national and international groups which aim to support moves towards a kinder, peaceful and more just world for all. This could be by protesting, by speaking out, by joining groups that are helping to prevent or alleviate stress arising from war, poverty and the other miseries we all inflict on each other. We fundraise for both large and small charities.
If you wish to know more about any of these activities, please speak to someone at the meeting or use our Contact Us page.
