History of Jesus Lane Meeting

Quakers first held meetings in Jesus Lane in the 1650s. Parts of the present Meeting House date from 1777 and there have been additions and rebuildings at various times in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Today, Friends still meet each Sunday and Wednesday for worship based in silence.

We warmly welcome anyone who feels drawn to experiencing Quaker worship.
