Madison Friends Meeting

We welcome you to explore the Madison Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. We celebrate the inclusion of individuals, couples, or families of all backgrounds and constellations in every aspect of the life of our Meeting. In worship we gather for an hour to listen for the presence of Spirit within -- our inner teacher.  

Madison, Wisconsin is situated on the ancestral lands of the Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) People. The Ho-Chunk describe themselves as the Hochungra, which translates to “People of the Sacred Language.” Learn more here

We are an unprogrammed meeting affiliated with FGC (Friends General Conference) and Northern Yearly Meeting (NYM).
