Faith in Action

Faith in Action...

Peace, Truth, Simplicity, Sustainability..

Quakers from earliest times have been committed to taking their faith out into the real world and playing a part in helping to transform it, even in small ways. 

Nationally and internationally Quakers are to be found in social & political action; everything prison chaplaincy to foodbanks, arms trade protests to high level peace & reconciliation work. The highly respected Ecumenical Accompaniment programme in Israel & Palestine (EAPPI) has for many years worked in the west bank as human rights monitors
