Welcome to Queensland Regional Meeting.

We are commonly knows as ‘Quakers’ and often call ourselves ‘Friends’. People who worship with us but have not taken formal membership may be called ‘friends’ or ‘Attenders’. We are a religious society without creed, dogma or statement of belief. We seek to express principles of simplicity, peace, integrity, compassion, equality and earth care in our everyday lives, based on our experience of the spirit that dwells in every person.

Meeting for Worship

The Meeting for Worship is central to the Quaker way of life. Quakers gather in silence, normally on a Sunday. The silence is an active listening for the spirit within, which has been practised by Friends for over 350 years. When moved by the Spirit, someone may give spoken ministry which emerges from silence and leads back into silence. Other special-purpose meetings such as meetings for marriages and funerals are also held in a spirit of silent worship.

Meeting for Worship is a wellspring which sustains and nurtures our commitment to action arising from deep concerns. We are strengthened to express our testimonies in action towards improvements.

Anyone is welcome to join us for Meeting for Worship.
