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 (June 2022) planning for childcare during the summer.  Please email nhfclerks@gmail.com to inquire about current schedule.

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
