Welcome to Crawshawbooth Quakers

A warm welcome awaits you here at Crawshawbooth Quakers  For spiritual seekers and visitors, you will find us, and a hearty welcome, at the historic building we gather in, tucked within a beautifully peaceful and colourful walled garden on Co-operation Street in Crawshawbooth.   

We are a small and friendly group and we meet every Sunday at 11 a.m. with our worship usually lasting around forty-five minutes.  During worship, as is the Quaker way, we sit in silence and practise ‘expectant waiting’, opening our hearts and minds to the insights and guidance we find within.  If we are moved to, we share our insights so that all might consider the meanings and significance for our individual lives and experiences.   

A place of historical importance  

The meeting house at Crawshawbooth is one of the earliest examples of a Quaker meeting house and, as such, it is a Grade II* listed building and of significance to the history of Quaker practice in the Rossendale area.  The garden provides a haven for wildlife and a peaceful area for contemplation.   

Enriching community 

We hope to open up next year our refurbished stable  for greater ease of access to accommodate and embrace the fullest range of diversity in the community.  This will enable us to offer a greater interleaving of relationships with individuals and groups in Rossendale so that we can offer a place to meet, share and learn.    


The founder of Quakers, George Fox in 1656 said: "Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations, wherever you come, that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in every one."
