We offer both in-person and online Sunday Meeting for Worship at 10:30 am - a 'hybrid' meeting.  Everyone is invited to attend. The Meeting room chairs are arranged to reflect CDC guidance, and attenders are required to wear a mask.   

The recurring Zoom link is included in the Weekly Updates email.  Or send request to nhquakers@gmail.com.

The First Day School program will begin for children ages 4+ on Sunday, October 16, 2022 at 10:15 am. More information will be sent next week, including an intake form that should be filled out for each child who will be paticipating in First Day School.  Please note that childcare will also be provided for children 4.

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.
