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
People are too apt to let their heads outrun their hearts, and their notions exceed their obedience, and their passions support their conceits, instead of a daily cross, a constant watch, and a holy practice. ~ William Penn, 1644-1718
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.
