An Unprogrammed* Quaker Meeting in Charlotte, NC

Charlotte Friends Meeting

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you will find Charlotte Friends Meeting a warm, active, multi-generational faith community, committed to the Quaker ethos of spirituality, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship.

*Unprogrammed refers to the practice of gathering together in silence, each able to stand and speak as they feel led, with worship ending when a designated Friend shakes hands with a neighbor. There is no paid ministry. Charlotte Friends Meeting is affiliated with The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
