Welcome to Stockport Quakers.

Quakers, known formally as The Religious Society of Friends, have been active in Stockport since the late 1600’s. There has been a Quaker Meeting House near to the centre of Stockport for over 300 years. The first one having been established on Middle Hillgate in 1706, Quakers (or Friends) have been involved in Stockport life in many ways since that time.

Our Meeting House is a place of worship, it is also a resource for the community, and we are very happy to see it being so well used by a wide number of local community services and resources.

Quakers believe that there is that of God in everyone, and that there is Light within each of us. At the core of our faith are our values – peace, truth and integrity, simplicity and sustainability, equality and justice. We have no creed that states our beliefs. Rather, we try to live our lives in such a way that we are each living examples of the Spirit.

Meeting for Worship is the cornerstone of Quakerism. In a meeting for worship two or more people gather together to wait in stillness. It is our experience that in the collective stillness we can each experience ultimate truth, a deep religious experience, the leadings of the Spirit (different Quakers might use different words).

Stockport Meeting is a Local Meeting within East Cheshire Area Meeting. You can view or download the full Safeguarding Policy document here.

East Cheshire Area Meeting is part of Britain Yearly Meeting.
