Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Gainesville Quakers

" . . . walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone . . . "

George Fox

You are welcome here.  Join us for worship.

Quakers, such as those at Gainesville Meeting, make up a small percentage of Friends around the world. Today, unprogrammed Friends collaborate with Friends from all branches of Quakerism.

Quakers who worship in unprogrammed meetings share a way of life, not a set of beliefs. We believe that there is “that of God” in everyone. We seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us. We meet together for worship in local meetings which are inclusive and open to all. Quakerism is a way of life built upon values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship, rather than a written set of beliefs. Quakers have a long-held commitment to putting their faith into direct action in the world.

Quaker meetings offer a place where people can find a real sense of community and are free to challenge, question and explore their own beliefs, values and ideas. Many Quakers describe it as a spiritual home – a place of deep connections; a group of people bound together by an awareness of the sacred in all things and a desire to change the world for the better.
