West Newton Friends Meeting

West Newton Friends Meeting (church) is a Christian fellowship of Quakers, seeking to live in close relationship to God. Because of God's love and grace for each of us and led by Jesus' example, we are committed to:

    - provide opportunities for growth in the Spirit

    - support one another in personal trials and celebrations,

    - encourage and prepare each person to use his/her gifts of ministry

    - reach beyond our fellowhip and gather others into relationship with God

You Are Welcome Here!

Quaker Quote

There is something of God in every man, let us affirm it more certainly than ever, but surrounded as we are by millions of new-made graves and with the voices of the hungry and the dispossessed in our ears, let us not easily accept the impious hope that the natural goodness of ourselves is sufficient stuff out of which to fashion a better world.
~ Gilbert H. Kilpack, 1914-1999

The quotations used in this space are from Quakers. The quotes will be changed often to give a feeling for the thinking of some of those who passed this way before us and Friends today.
