New Haven Friends Meeting

Religious Society of Friends/Quakers

You are Welcome Here

 We believe that every person is loved by Divine Spirit. Our Quaker community includes people of all ages, religious backgrounds, race, education, sexual orientation, gender identities, and classes.

You are welcome to join us as you are. Dress as you feel comfortable.  We come together in worship:

  • To listen to God;
  • To know and be known by God;
  • To grow in our faith;
  • To be changed;
  • To support each other; and 
  • To help one another do what God asks us to do.

    Our time together looks like

    • Quietly sitting together;
    • Listening to those who are moved by the Spirit to speak;
    • Children sit upstairs for the first 15 minutes.  They then may gather downstairs for a separate childrens' program until 11:30;
    • Shaking hands when worship is ended, led by a member of Ministry and Counsel;
    • Greeting those around us, followed by sharing food during fellowship downstairs.
