New Brunswick Friends Meeting (NYYM)

An Invitation

The Religious Society of Friends (or Quakers) is a spiritual community with a centuries-long history of working for peace, equality, freedom of conscience, and an end to slavery both past and current. We welcome you to worship with us, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religious background.

Maybe you’re not quite sure what you believe. Maybe you are, but don’t feel like there’s a name for it. Maybe you come from an interfaith family and don’t want to choose sides. Perhaps you feel unsafe in your community because of who you are or what you stand for. Maybe you just don’t have a house of worship nearby and would like a place where you can deepen your faith. Or maybe you’re looking for something new. Quakers are historically a Christian denomination, but our goal is to deepen your faith, not replace it.

While Friends do not have any creedal statement, a central unifying concept for Quakers is the image of a spark of the Divine within all people. Quakers express this in phrases like the “inner light”, “that of God within us”, or the “inner Christ”. The belief in this unifying presence has led Quakers to be concerned about social justice. It has also led us to strive for peaceful resolution to all conflicts.

A Quaker meeting is a period of meditative worship combining expectant silence and spoken words. There is no spiritual leader and no pre-arranged program. Each attender helps to determine the depth of our worship as a group.

Whether you are looking for a new spiritual home or another place to worship, we invite you to work and pray with us.
