Tottenham Quakers

How do we let our lives speak, today?

Quakers often say there is little to distinguish between spiritual and everyday life. Our faith is often best expressed through what we do and how we live our lives. Some of the ways that we in Tottenham "let our lives speak", include:

  • membership of a Quaker healing group

  • volunteer in a Quaker run soup kitchen for people who are homeless

  • serving on the Family Welfare Association committee supporting elderly people in the local community

  • volunteer work with women and children in a local domestic violence refuge

  • campaigning against racism and working for peace

  • serving on the Quaker Peace and Service United Nations Committee and working in the Quaker United Nations Office in New York

  • volunteering in a cross-community project with children and families in Northern Ireland

  • co-founding the Quaker Lesbian Group

  • being involved in the Quaker Youth Theatre and Quaker Festival Orchestra

  • tending to the meeting house garden

  • volunteering for a national mental health charity

  • working with refugees in former Yugoslavia
