Charlotte Friends Meeting

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

  • 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.
