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.
Welcome to the Canberra & Region Quakers
This site is a resource for people wishing to find out about Quakers in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and nearby southern New South Wales (NSW).
Canberra & Region Meeting is part of the broader Australia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (as Quakers are formally known).
Our Meeting embraces the values of diversity and inclusion. We therefore welcome all who wish to attend our Meetings for Worship and participate in our activities.
If you are new to Quakers, you may wish to find out more about Quaker beliefs and practice. Other information about Canberra & Region Quakers and Quakers in general can be found on our pages. We hope you’ll explore, read and enjoy.
Our Meetings for Worship are held in Canberra (North & South), Goulburn, Wagga Wagga, the Bega Valley and Silver Wattle Quaker Centre. Please see Meetings for Worship for details. Or feel free to contact us.
We also make our rooms available for hire to community groups. Contact us for further information.
