Canberra & Region Quakers

Welcome to

Canberra & Region Quakers

Canberra & Region Quakers are a spiritual community of people living in Canberra and southern New South Wales. We are part of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Australia and worldwide. Quakers seek direct experience of the Truth through worship based on silence and a commitment to simplicity, peace, integrity, community, earth-care and equality.

Canberra & Region Quakers acknowledge the Ngunnawal, Ngambri, Wiradjuri, Gundungurra, Ngarigo and Yuin peoples as the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we meet and pay respect to their elders, past, present and future.”
