    Quakers, also called Friends, are a historically Christian denomination whose formal name is the Religious Society of Friends or Friends Church. Members of the various Quaker movements are all generally united by their belief in the ability of each human being to experientially access the light within, or "that of God in every one".. Some profess the priesthood of all believers, a Founder: George Fox.   Quaker worship is minimalist in approach, and allied to its minimalist approach, is the use of silence which is at its core. Although worship is un-programmed, it follows a set format of silence punctuated by the possibility of individual ministry. Ministry, like silence, is performative.

    The Quaker way is not the only path to the Divine. The Religious Society of Friends and Third Haven Friends acknowledge variations in Quaker faith and practice. See Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, Faith and Practice, , pp 2. Silent Worship: In Quaker worship, we listen in silence to hear leadings of the Spirit inwardly. On the first Sunday of the month during term time, our Student Quaker Elders organise a more informal Meeting for Worship. The Meeting starts with music and is followed by silent worship for about 25 minutes and is followed by a cup of tea and some time to talk to each other. Everyone from the school and the local community is welcome to attend.

    How Quakers Worship Most meetings (congregations) in New York Yearly Meeting worship in what we call silent, expectant waiting worship. Some meetings, however, have simple services like other Protestant churches, with presiding ministers, hymn singing, led vocal prayer, scripture readings, and sermons. The heart of the Quaker way is the silent Meeting for Worship, which generally lasts for one hour. Meeting for Worship is a time for communal, gathered stillness, where we can be open to inspiration from the Spirit of God or the Light Within, heard .
