We are a friendly group of people from King's Lynn and West Norfolk. We warmly welcome visitors of all faiths and none: whoever you are, you are welcome to be with us.
As Quakers, we have our roots in the life and teachings of Jesus, without being tied to a fixed formula of belief. We learn from the experiences of others and work towards common human goals. We provide a comfortable place to seek, share and explore. We try hard to live by what we understand to be true.
We hold a variety of beliefs. We discover our unity in a way of life and in worship together.
We are best known for our shared testimonies to truth, simplicity, equality and peace.
Saturday 14th July & Sunday 15th July
We plan to join the King's Lynn Festival by marking the opening of our refurbished barn as a resource for the local community.
An exhibition of arts and crafts on Saturday will be followed on Sunday by a ticketed lunch, accompanied by temperance beers and live music from Nelson's Shantymen of Burnham Thorpe.
Shared lunches on fourth Sundays...
...will start again in September. We have no plans for shared lunches over the summer months.

Visitors & visiting
Anyone is, of course, welcome to attend our Meeting in King’s Lynn. It is a particular pleasure when people who join us are members/attendees of other Quaker meetings, or have an association with them. Such contacts help to build links with meetings further afield and thereby may encourage more people to visit us in King's Lynn and to introduce themselves to us.
A number of our (King’s Lynn Meeting) Friends have been to other Meeting Houses, both in Britain and overseas, usually when they have been away on holiday or business. In recent years locations for those visits have included Lewes (East Sussex), Canterbury (Kent), Gainsborough (Lincolnshire), Montgomery (Mid Wales), Auckland (New Zealand), Orlando, Florida (USA) and Paris (France). And, of course, several in Norfolk!
It would be interesting to know of other Meeting Houses visited by members/attendees from King’s Lynn Quakers. We should appreciate having suggestions as to Meetings that are recommended for historical, architectural or any other reason (even if it is only on account of the very friendly welcome or excellent coffee!). Please contribute to the discussion by suggesting something for this website.
We meet for worship at 10.30am on Sundays.
Please follow this link for more information about joining us for worship.
