Welcome

Horsham Quaker Meeting house is home to Horsham Quakers. It is a place of worship as well as a space of peace and tranquillity serving our whole community in the heart of the town. The current building dates from 1784 but Quakers have been worshipping on this site since 1680s.

 

COVID-19: October 2021

The Meeting House is now open for Meeting for Worship in person. We continue to meet via the virtual platform ZOOM on Sundays and Wednesdays. Everyone is welcome.   

Hiring: Hiring in the main meeting hall is now available, we hope to open the Rigge Room shortly.

Meeting for Worship times:

  • ​​Sundays 10.30-11.30am 

  • Wednesdays 12.15-12.45pm

 

Everyone is welcome at Meeting for Worship regardless of faith (or none), ethnicity, sexuality, age, gender, or background. Quakers say there is "that of God within every person" and this belief in equality is at the heart of our values. Our meetings are based on a silent gathering with no ministers or creeds, set hymns, prayers or sermons. In the stillness, we open our hearts and lives to new insights and guidance.
 

If you haven't experienced a Quaker Meeting for Worship before and are curious what to expect, the "First visit" page will hopefully answer all your practical & spiritual questions.

The Quaker Way

Simple * radical * contemporary

 

Space to explore your deepest beliefs

& how to live them.

  • Faith is about the whole of life.

  • It is a journey not a destination.

  • Silent gathering can reveal the mysteries of spirit where words divide.

  • There is that of God in everyone.

  • We trust our own experience of inner light.

  • Faith often leads to action

  • We try to live by our testimonies: ​

​   Simplicity  Truth   Equality  Peace  Sustainability
