Please note that West Bromwich Worship Group will not be meeting now until 15th January 2018, as they take a break over the festive period.

But, do Quakers celebrate Christmas? As Britain Yearly Meeting state on the national Quaker website:

In this season of goodwill, it is worth remembering Quakers in the seventeenth century did not mark out Christmas as more holy than any other day. They believed each day, and all of life, was sacred and Christmas Day was no different.

Today, most Quakers do keep Christmas, while recognising the message of ‘peace on earth’ is relevant throughout the year. Led by their belief in equality, peace and justice for all people, Quakers try to bring the Christmas message alive every day of the year.”
