New Haven Friends Meeting
Religious Society of Friends/Quakers
You are Welcome Here
We believe that every person is loved by Divine Spirit. There are Quakers of all ages, religious backgrounds, race, education, sexual orientation, gender identities, and classes.
You are welcome to join us as you are. Dress as you feel comfortable.
We come together in worship:
- To listen to God;
- To know and be known by God;
- To grow in our faith;
- To be changed;
- To support each other; and
- To help one another do what God asks us to do.
Our time together looks like
- Quietly sitting together
- Listening for someone who is moved by the Spirit to speak
- Children are included and then may gather for the children's program
- Shaking hands when worship ends; and greeting those around us.

The theme of the 356th Annual Sessions was ”Being the Hands of God: A Call to Radical Faithfulness.” Doug Gwyn, pastor of Durham Friends Meeting in Maine, offered the Bible half hours each morning. Through stories of early Friends reclaiming the power they encountered in the Scriptures to build a world-changing movement in their time, we heard a call to take up the work of listening for and living in the guidance of that same Life and Power as we seek to be faithful now. Nearly 600 Friends attended Annual Sessions in Castleton, Vermont.
Fellowship has a mission of deepening and strengthening relationships within our community and welcoming newcomers. The Committee arranges for and guides visible activities and behind-the-scene details that forward this mission.
Every year in June, New Have Friends Meeting First Day School wraps up its school year with a telling of the story of John Woolman. The story is followed by tie dying and an ice cream social for the entire Meeting.
