Are Quakers Christian? What does it mean to be Christian and does it matter whether we are or not? ‘Yes’ and ‘no’ may not be suitable answers here; rather, we will consider how and to what extent the Christian and Quaker traditions overlap.

If you have ever wondered if Quakers count as Christians, whether you are a Quaker or Christian or both or neither, you are welcome to join this session. We are unlikely to reach a single answer, but will make space for a wide range of alternatives. Paying careful attention to these will help you to reach your own conclusions.

Quakers and those around us frequently ask how our tradition relates to Christianity. Exploring this question involves history, theology, culture, current practice, politics, and personal commitments. In 90 minutes together we will touch on all of these aspects, making space for your perspectives and ideas, and helping you to understand why it is both an important and a continuing question.
