In the quiet of a Quaker Meeting you may find the spirit within

There have been Quakers in Sevenoaks since the 1650s. Seventeenth
century records tell of a Quaker, Nathaniel Owen, who with others was at
one time imprisoned at Canterbury for refusing to bear arms, and later, in
1675, fined and again imprisoned, this time at Fleet, and his warehouse of
woollen cloth impounded, after informers introduced a JP to a meeting at
his house.

The present Meeting House was opened in 1960. Prior to this, the building was used as the sanatorium for nearby Walthamstow School.


Today, our main Meeting for Worship in on Sundays. In addition, we have discussion groups and talks, as well as walks, social events and meetings with other Quakers in Kent.


In our Meeting for Worship, we gather in silence, in a practice centuries old, to wait upon God.
The meeting has no pastor or priest.
Individuals who feel prompted to speak may do so.
Such ministry is generally brief, plainly spoken so that all may hear, and grounded in the speaker's spiritual experience.

Ideally, a spoken message is preceded and followed by periods of silence.
No one comes to meeting prepared to speak, and meeting is not a discussion group.
Together we strive to discern God's will.
We conclude the meeting by shaking hands.
