Welcome

We welcome you to our Quaker Meeting.  Each Sunday morning we worship together, and through both expectant silence and shared ministry we are moved together to Spirit.  There is no appointed minister and no prearranged program.  Each one who enters the meeting contributes her or his presence, and helps to determine the depth and quality of our worship.  Gathering quietly in worship, we seek direct communion with our Creator.  We try to listen through the noise of the world in an inward process of prayer and meditation, so that we may hear the 'still, small voice' and Spirit-led stirrings that bring us into unity with God.

Each meeting for worship is unique.  Many meetings are totally silent while in others, spoken words, prayers, songs, and even laughter or tears arise from the silence.  At times, we experience that a message forming in our own heart and thought gets voiced by another friend, and carried further than we could carry it.  This seems strange and wonderful, but it is part of the great unseen life in which silent worship links us together and brings us comfort and inspiration.

What's New

Our worship together is a search for a direct experience of the Divine Light at our center, as individuals and as a faith community. It is hard to communicate in words this spiritual experience, and the resulting wisdom of the heart.

Public

The Storrs Friends Meeting has no professional minister, or staff. Everything we do is done by members of our community, volunteering and nominated from within the community.
