Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

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 faith community includes people of any age, religious background, race, education, nationality, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or economic circumstance.

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 this:

    • Children and adults gathering together at 10:15 am for family circle, in the Meeting Room, with songs and stories.  All are welcome in the family circle. Children then go downstairs for their own programs.  Family circle does not meet during July and August.
    • During Meeting for Worship upstairs, sitting quietly together; a message, song or poem may arise and be shared.
    • Listening to those who are moved by the Spirit to speak or sing (during the 10:30 worship time we use a hand held microphone so all can hear clearly);
    • Shaking hands when worship is ended;
    • Greeting those around us;
    • Sharing food during 11:30 am fellowship downstairs.  The current Fellowship Volunteer list is HERE.
    *Adapted from materials from Friends General Conference.

    Quaker author Michael Birkel felt that we aren't hearing the whole truth about Islam.  So he went out to discover it for himself.
