Quakers have a long tradition of being active in, and seeking to make a difference to, the world in which they find themselves. In their actions they seek to put Quaker testimonies such as equality, peace and integrity into practice, as best they can. This website aims to bring together the many different ways in which they have done this, all over the world.
We are a Quaker presence at the United Nations, representing Friends’ concerns for global peace and justice to the international community.

‘Experiment with Light’ is a Quaker practice which is based on early Friends’ discoveries.
It was devised in 1996 by Quaker and theologian Rex Ambler following his study of early Friends’ writings. He wanted to discover what it was that made them so sure, so centred, so willing to suffer privations to keep alive their faith.
He discovered a process by which the Light may be accessed.
