New Haven Friends Meeting

Religious Society of Friends/Quakers

May 2021 

New Haven Friends Meeting is now offering both in person and online Meeting worship at 10:30 am on Sundays* - a 'hybrid' meeting.  In the Meeting Room air scrubbers have been installed, chairs are arranged 6 feet apart and attenders are required to wear a mask.  Those attending remotely over Zoom see and hear those in the Meeting Room in a "window".  Those in the Meeting Room see those at home on a large TV screen with sound.  Hurrah!

Family Circle has closed until next autumn.  *Please check out the exception for the Third Sunday each month under Meeting Times in the right hand column on this page.

You are Welcome Here

 We believe that every person is loved by Divine Spirit. Our Quaker faith community includes people of any age, religious background, race, education, nationality, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or economic circumstance.

You are welcome to join us as you are. We come together in worship at 10:30am:

  • To listen to promptings of the Spirit;
  • To experience a collective Presence/Wisdom;
  • To grow in our faith;
  • To be changed;
  • To support each other; and 
  • To help one another do what the inner LIght urges us to do.
