Courses & Learning

"The atmosphere of the place was so serene, warming and healing. The tutors were inspiring and filled with kindness, compassion and love."

Mindfully Together, October 2012

Woodbrooke is Europe's only Quaker Study Centre. We have offered adult education for those of any faith or none from around the world since 1903. Currently, a year-round programme of short courses is offered, as well as longer-term programmes of study and off-site education. Woodbrooke's learning opportunities have always been based around exploring Quakerism and the themes of interest to Quakers, such as Peace and Reconciliation, Quaker History and Spiritual Journeys.

Everyone is welcome at Woodbrooke - choose an option below and be pleasantly surprised by the range of courses we offer!
