Glossary of Quaker terms used in the episode:
Meeting for Worship - One of the central ways that Quakers worship. British Quakers gather together in silence but anyone present can speak if strongly moved to.
Meeting House - A venue used for Meeting for Worship and other Quaker activities.
Ministry - Although Meeting is usually held in silence in the UK, sometimes people are moved to share aloud what they feel, also known as 'ministry'. Anyone can give ministry, including visitors. Quaker Faith & Practice states: “Ministry should be of necessity, and not of choice, and there is no living by silence, or by preaching merely.” 2.61
Unprogrammed Worship - Silent worship that takes place with no hymns, prayers, sermons, ministers, or creeds.
