Welcome to Quakers in Oxford

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Quaker faith springs from the experience that each one of us can have a direct relationship with the Divine.

Quakers find that by meeting together for communal worship we are empowered to find peace and strength for work in the world.

We will not Fight

“We will not fight” was commissioned by Commemorating Peacemakers, a small Oxford-based group of activists committed to telling the story of resistance to the First World War. The production was funded by the WF Southall Trust, the Radley Trust, Oxford Local Meeting, Oxford and Swindon Area Meeting, Fellowship of Reconcilation, and Movement for the Abolition of War.
