Friends meeting house near Sedbergh in Northwest England, built in 1675
A Friends meeting house is a meeting house of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), where meeting for worship is usually held. Typically Friends meeting houses do not have steeples. Quakers do not believe that meeting for worship should occur in any special place. They believe that "where two or three meet together in my name, I am there among them". Therefore meeting for worship may take place in any place. Early Quakers often met for worship outdoors or in local public buildings. However, when the Religious Society of Friends began to grow there became a need for buildings to house their meetings.
