Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends
An Unprogrammed Quaker Meeting in Charlotte, NC

Charlotte Friends Meeting

As a meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, we seek to:

  • be guided by Spirit, individually and collectively;

  • foster a caring, welcoming, and inclusive fellowship;

  • deepen our experience of Quaker worship, faith, and practice;

  • broaden our understanding of Quaker history and principles; 

  • and strengthen our service and witness in the broader world.


Updated November 2021 - Join us for blended Meeting for Worship each Sunday at 10am. For those joining us at the meetinghouse, we ask that you wear a mask and sit socially distanced. Those unable to attend at the meetinghouse are welcome to join us online using our Zoom link. 

Request link to join us virtually on Zoom.  For any questions or technical help, contact Sue (call/text 704-497-6737).

Please read over our  Blended (Hybrid) Meeting Guidelines.

NOTE: We are just past the Rocky River Village neighborhood, on the right. Look for our gravel driveway entrance on Rocky River Rd. Our entrance sign is leaning against a metal gate up a few yards off the main road, due to the road construction on Rocky River Rd. As of 11/21 - there's a road construction sign at our entrance that says "Uneven Pavement." If you get lost, call or text Sue at 704-497-6737. Be careful!
