About Halifax Quaker Meeting

Dating from the early 1650s when William Dewsbury is recorded as having settled the Meeting, Halifax Friends meet in the third Meeting House to be established in Halifax, built in 1743 and extended in 1851. Although this building was sold in the 1990s, Friends returned to the Meeting House in 2007 and now rent a room on the first floor. This mezzanine overlooks the area where Meeting for Worship was originally held.  Halifax Friends extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join them in quiet contemplation on a Sunday morning.


Rooms are available for hire. Use the contact form below to request more information.

Meeting for Worship is held on the first floor, up a narrow flight of stairs. We regret that there is no disabled access.

There is no children’s Meeting.
