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.
We are currently (May 2022) in the process of restarting our Sunday school program and childcare for infants and toddlers. Please email nhfclerks@gmail.com to inquire about current offerings.

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.

    If you have questions about our Meeting, contact us at nhquakers@gmail.com

    Please join us at 10:15 each Sunday before Meeting for Worship for a First Day School Circle.  In the Circle, adults and children connect for a moment of quiet and fellowship.  We sing songs and share rituals.  All members of our community (not just those with children) are encouraged to attend. At 10:30, children wishing to stay for the first 15 min are welcome.  Others will transition to lessons with teachers and loving child care.  We have several teachers this year to meet the needs of different age groups.
