Welcome to Spiceland (Uffculme) Quakers.

Quakers, who are more formally known as the Religious Society of Friends, were founded in 1652 by George Fox. The Society is rooted in Christianity, but Members, known as Friends, are open to the light from wherever it may come. Friends seek to live out our principles of truth, peace, simplicity and equality, recognising that of God in everyone.

Our beautiful, historic Meeting House, near the village of Uffculme, Mid Devon, serves a wide area with many Quakers (Friends) living in the surrounding villages.

We meet every Sunday at 10.30am for a one hour Meeting for Worship, followed by Afterwords and Notices. There are then refreshments.

At Spiceland, the Worship is followed by a few minutes of “Afterwords” during which anyone present can talk about any thoughts they may have had during the meeting, even though they did not feel prompted to speak during the hour’s Worship.   This experience can often be uplifting.

In addition to the above there are Meetings for Worship each month on:

  • First Wednesday at 2.30pm in Tiverton.
  • Second Wednesday at 7.30pm  in Wiveliscombe.
  • Third Wednesday  at 2.15pm in Kentisbeare
  • Fouth Wednesday at 5.30pm in Hemyock
