Very interesting; I'm sure there are many silent groups who want to keep under the radar.
Can't blame them; everyone tries to give religions so much bad press.

Actually the Quakers have good press. They see their mission as helping social issues and concerns. They do not have a minister or a creed. They have no hierarchy and do not tell people what to believe. They were the first church to support gay marriage in the UK. It is very liberal There are a big range of views there, anything from fundamentalist to atheists and differing religions. The service is open and everyone can participate in the service and its management.
