Wallingford Quakers

Welcome to our Meeting

Our Meeting House is in Castle Street, close to Wallingford town centre.

On Sundays, about 20 people meet in Quaker worship. There is no programme or leader: anyone who feels called to speak may do so, but often Meetings for Worship are largely silent. We have separate facilities for children. Refreshments are available following Meeting for Worship. All are welcome

Details of Meetings for Worship and other upcoming events are in the calendar below

The Meeting House and toilet facilities are suitable for some wheelchair users. A hearing loop is available.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, Wallingford Quakers are meeting online

Our history
Did you know that a Wallingford Quaker had £40 of cattle taken from him in 1667, because he refused to pay a tithe to the established church?  Or that Wallingford Quaker meeting house was used as a greengrocer's shop in the 1920s?  To find out more, read Matthew Callow's 'A brief historical and contemporary account of Quakers in the Wallingford area'.
