The 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.

We also make our rooms available for hire to community groups. Contact us for further information. Feel free to contact us.
Canberra and Region Quakers affirm and celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion. We welcome seekers of all ancestries and cultures, all sexualities and genders, all socio-economic backgrounds, all capacities and abilities and all religious and non-religious backgrounds or beliefs. We strive to value the gifts in all people because we believe that the beauty and richness of creation is in its diversity.
