Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers.  We are located in Northfield, MN, about 35 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  

What's New

Cannon Valley Friends will open our doors to the wider communities on Saturday, September 19, in the afternoon (exact time still TBD pending schedule of International Day of Peace celebration on Bridge Square).

We decided to mark the one year anniversary of our first Meeting for Worship in the Meeting House with an Open House, which also coincides with the UN International Day of Peace on September 21st. There will be music, speakers, refreshment, tours, and gratitude!


QuakerSpeak, a project of Friends Journal, has created a series of videos on topics of particular interest to Friends.  Anyone who is interested in learning more about Quakers may find these videos informative, as well.

Some of those videos can be viewed on this page.  For a list of other QuakerSpeak videos, please click here.
