We seek a personal relationship with the living God.
But as Quakers, we just do it a little differently.
We gather for worship, and yes, sometimes we sit in silence. But sometimes we also sing out loud. And other times, we gather to share meals, study together, or just work in our garden.
Whatever brought you to this page is likely what will bring you through our door. As a part of the wider Christian community, we offer a unique Quaker perspective on simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality. And we can't wait to meet you, Friend.
