Welcome to

Our Website


Do you respect that of God in everyone though it may be expressed in unfamiliar ways or be difficult to discern? Each of us has a particular experience of God and each must find the way to be true to it. When words are strange or disturbing to you, try to sense where they come from and what has nourished the lives of others. Listen patiently and seek the truth which other people’s opinions may contain for you. Avoid hurtful criticism and provocative language. Do not allow the strength of your convictions to betray you into making statements or allegations that are unfair or untrue. Think it possible that you may be mistaken.


Love Came

Love came
     flowed like blood
     beneath skin, through veins
emptied me of my self
     filled me
     with the Beloved
till every limb
     every organ was seized
     and occupied
till only
     my name remains.
     the rest is It.

Abu-Said Abil-Kheir

Do to the current virus situation we have decided to suspend Meeting for Worship in Gainsborough.


“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.”
 Martin Luther

I was maybe 5 or 6, and my grandmother would begin sitting me in the Quaker meeting house. I asked my grandmother, 'What am I supposed to do?' and she said, 'Just wait, we're going inside to greet the light.' I liked that—this idea to go inside to find that light within, literally as well as figuratively.
James Turrell

“For when I came into the silent assemblies of God’s people I felt a secret power among them which touched my heart; and as I gave way unto it I found the evil weakening in me and the good raised up…”

Robert Barclay

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief.

Do justly now.

Love mercy,now.

Walk humbly,now.

You are not obligated to complete the work,but niether are you free to abandon it.

The Talmud

Sara Maitland: 'Savour solitude - it is not the same as loneliness'

The author argues we should celebrate the positives of being alone - and that concerns about the effects of lockdown on mental health may be misplaced
