Broadmead Friends Meeting

Welcome to Broadmead Friends Meeting!

Bluffton & Toledo

Broadmead is a Quaker meeting in Northwest Ohio.
We worship together each Sunday in expectant silence.

Visitors are always welcome.  We are an LGBTQIA welcoming community. 

Please join us Sundays at 10 am as we gather for silent worship in person and on Zoom.

Most Sundays, we gather in two locations because our group extends 70 miles along I-75.
Toledo worship group meets every Sunday in a hybrid format, both in person and on Zoom. Bluffton worship group meets in person on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of the month. On the first Sunday, Bluffton joins Toledo's hybrid worship.  On the third Sunday, a smaller group meets in Toledo while a second group of Toledo and Bluffton Friends meets together at various locations.  10 AM Meeting for worship is followed by a program, discussion, business meeting, or potluck. 
Please check our calendar for details!   You are always welcome to join any of our gatherings. 

For information on how to join our online meeting, please email Sally at sommerjs@bluffton.edu

Except for our Spring St. location in Bluffton, all of our locations are wheelchair accessible. 
Please let us know if additional accommodations are necessary.

Dear Friends, May 2020 I wanted to be in touch with you during this time of uncertainty and loss, of scrambling to adjust to new ways of supporting our spiritual communities, and of (eventually) imagining something new coming out of it all.
