Friends – Do they make a difference?
Sounds like a silly question doesn’t it? Many of us will have friends who help us in our lives. Some of us will have been good friends to others in times of need. Such friends make a difference on a personal level. But what about within a community, or at national or even a global level? That’s where Quaker Friends come in. Since 1650 Quakers have been challenging the status quo and pioneering new forms of social behaviour.

Historically, we are known for our impact upon such areas as slavery, business affairs, prison reform and worker’s welfare. Today, the Quaker community continues to grow in scope and influence, often quietly and persistently behind the scenes at the level of national governments and also at the UN. We are active in peace and disarmament, human rights, community and housing, economic justice and increasingly with environmental issues and sustainable living.

Want to hear more about our work? Or the Quaker community and the testaments of truth, justice, equality, simplicity and peace to which we hold? Then please come along to our Meetings in the Bakewell Friends Meeting House at 10.30am every Sunday.

Friends – still making a difference.

Bakewell Friends Meeting

Welcome Friends


Quakers, or Friends, are members of the Religious Society of Friends, also called by some the Friends' Church. Friends are theologically diverse; many Friends regard themselves as Christian, and include those with evangelical, holiness, liberal and traditional Quaker understandings of Christianity. Others groups of Friends with Christian atheist or universalist beliefs have emerged as well.

Quakers affirm that every person has 'that of God' within them; that every person can directly experience God in their own way; that in our silent worship and in living in community we discover together what truth and love mean for us.
