    Unitarian Chapel, King Edward Street, Macclesfield

    Macclesfield Quakers hold meetings twice a month.

    You're invited to join us for Meeting for Worship at the beautiful King Edward Street Unitarian Chapel.

    The Quaker Way is firmly based in the belief that everyone has equal access to the Divine.

    Simple, silent group communion with the Divine - however it is thought of - is at the core of the British Quaker Way.

    There is no service and no priest, just the willingness to directly experience the Sacred as a group, rather than through a mediated service or personal meditation.

    During this simple yet rich worship, anyone may be deeply moved by the Spirit to speak, enriching the silence rather than interrupting it.

    Meeting for Worship begins at 2.30pm for one hour, followed by refreshments and informal discussion.

    The chapel provides a wheelchair ramp for access from the street, a loop system for the hearing impaired, and accessible toilet facilities. There is ample car parking across the road."

    Quaker Meeting for worship is held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at the Unitarian Chapel on King Edward Street from 2.30-3.30pm.
