Local Quaker History

About our community

Friends House Quaker Local Meeting (FHLM) is a long-established community of Quakers who meet for worship every Sunday morning in Friends House, opposite Euston Station.

Friends House itself is the administrative base of Britain Yearly Meeting (BYM) – the national body that supports Quaker meetings across the country and Quaker work around the world. FHLM is simply the local Quaker meeting that happens to take place in the building: we are part of North West London Area Quaker Meeting.

Our Meeting for Worship takes place every Sunday from 11am to 12 noon in the George Fox Room, a conference room on the second floor (accessible by lift) or is also available online by Zoom. If you’d like to join us by Zoom, please email FHClerk@outlook.com.

We are open to all people and typically have around 40 to 50 worshippers each week. These always include newcomers to Quakerism and Quakers who are visiting from other parts of the world.

Our regular members come from across London and from a diverse range of communities and identities.

Our Meeting for Worship is often entirely silent. After Meeting for Worship, we have social time and often a discussion group or business meeting takes place from 12.30pm to 1.30pm – see the events page for more details.
