Dover Friends Meeting

If you are wondering what God may be, looking for a purpose in life, craving company, or loving solitude - Come to our Meeting for Worship!  Find depth in your spiritual life in a supportive community of fellow seekers.

We welcome you to this meeting for worship.  We gather in silence, endeavoring to submit ouselves wholly to the divine spirit, which we believe is accessible to every attentive mind.  There is no human leader and no planned program.  We are all seekers trying to live in the spirit of Christ in our modern world.

Sometimes speaking arises out of the silence.  Sometimes no words are spoken.  Those who speak are brief and those who listen should do so in quiet attention.  A period of silence follows each message.  Each person contributes, silently or with words, to the depth of worship we reach as a group.

The soul has no gender, no race.  All are welcome.
