Bolton Quaker Meeting House is owned and managed by Bolton Quakers as their place of worship in Bolton. Although it’s a centre for worship, Quakers do not believe buildings are special in themselves. The building is plain (Quakers put great emphasis on simplicity) and light. Quakers worship in silence, and believe that in silent waiting all can draw nearer to God and to the spirit that unites all people.
Users often comment on the building’s peaceful atmosphere but it’s a fairly robust place too! Quakers believe that people’s personal beliefs should influence their daily lives and seek to live with integrity. They look to discover the good in all people and so see no conflict in having their place of worship used by a wide variety of groups for discussion, debate, entertainment and fun!
