Prayer Meetings & Vigils


Friendship Hour

Friendship hour takes place on most months and is an opportunity to come together to learn about different faiths and spend time in prayer and reflection together. Sometimes there is a theme and sometimes we reflect on disasters and other unhappy events around the world

Everyone is very welcome, do just come along

Friendship hour is taken in turns by different faiths and at different venues, usually the place of worship of those leading it. The dates and venues are sent out to those on our mailing list and are also posted on our website and facebook pages

Mostly Friendship Hour happens on the last Thursday of the month between 7-8pm but it can vary depending on availability of those leading it


March will be Thursday 30th March at Friends’ Meeting House Ship Street Brighton BN1 1AF

Come and experience Quaker worship- everybody welcome
A Quaker  meeting for worship usually lasts for an hour. In Quaker worship there are no ministers or creeds. We first gather together in silence to quiet our minds – we don’t have set hymns, prayers or sermons.

In the stillness we open our hearts and lives to new insights and guidance. Sometimes we are moved to share what we discover with those present. We call this ‘ministry’. We listen to what everyone has to say to find its meaning for us. Anyone can give ministry.

What happens in the stillness?

In the quiet we look for a sense of connection. This might be a connection with those around us, with our deepest selves, or perhaps with God. As we feel this sense of encounter grow stronger, we may begin to see the world and our relationships in a new way. Our worship may take us beyond our own thoughts and ideas to help us respond more creatively to the world around us.
