Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Chatham Summit Quakers

We are a multi-generational community with a diversity of spiritual backgrounds, who support one another in our individual spiritual journeys. We offer opportunities for worship and spiritual growth as well as opportunities for involvement and social action. 

Our gathered, silent worship is a place of quiet reflection, where we listen for the guidance of the divine. In worship we are strengthened to live joyfully, to work for peace and social justice, and to reflect our values in our daily lives.

We value our Quaker traditions of equality, non-violence and simplicity, and we strive to be a community that welcomes all without regard to race, age, background, sexual preference or gender identity. 

You are welcome here!
