Maidstone Local Meeting

For a Quaker, religion is not an external activity, concerning a special 'holy' part of the self. It is an openness to the world in the here and now with the whole of the self.

Harvey Gillman (a British Quaker, writing in 1988)

Maidstone is a small meeting.

The central focus of Quaker spirituality is on our experience. We have no creed and there is no expectation of any particular belief.

So, what do Quakers value?

We do share values and practices that are important to us: in particular our religious practice based on waiting in stillness; listening to each other and to what we call the inner light. We seek to respond to that of God in everyone, although we may have widely differing understandings of what "God" means. Quakers also share a commitment to our testimony to peace, truth, equality, simplicity and sustainability. Quaker testimony is not just about holding these values to be important; it is about a way of living our lives and of acting in the world.

All are welcome to join us at Meeting for Worship on Sunday mornings. These are held every Sunday at 10.45 at our Meeting House at 170 Union Street Maidstone.

There is car parking behind the Meeting House; the nearest train station is Maidstone East; and bus station Maidstone town centre. Free parking on roadside on Sunday

We also hold an associated meeting in Sittingbourne on the first Sunday of each month.

Our Meeting House at 170 Union Street (see pictures on this page) is available for booking by community and other organizations.
