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 gather upstairs for a family circle at 10:15, with songs and stories, then go downstairs for a children's program. All are welcome in the family circle.
    • During Meeting for Worship upstairs, we sit quietly together;
    • Listening to those who are moved by the Spirit to speak (we use a hand held microphone so all can hear clearly);
    • 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.
    *Adapted from materials from Friends General Conference.

    Not For Ourselves Alone

    Public

    Based on the experiences of teachers and First Day School Committee during 2017, a slightly different approach is being tried in early 2018.  Rather than conceptualizing the children in age groups, we will facilitate different styles of activities and encourage kids to select the one that feels right to them.
