Trenton Meeting of Friends

Welcome to Trenton Meeting of Friends of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)! 

We meet for Worship each First Day (Sunday) at 10am.

There will be no gatherings at Trenton Friends Meeting House until the pandemic situation allows.
We will worship together using Zoom on our computers or telephones each week for now. If you want to join us for Quaker Worship and are not on our mailing list already you can request an invitation by emailing [email protected].

We worship together for about an hour in what is mostly silence.  Although not much is being said, there is much going on as we center together in prayer.  Sometimes out of that silence, people rise to speak, sharing messages that come from the holy part of them. We find the honesty and truth revealed in this way to be helpful and inspiring, sometimes leading to callings and actions.  Trenton's Quakers are active making contributions to our community and our world.

Among the historical testimonies that express central values of Quakers are the presence of God in each person, a direct and individual communion with God, and between all human beings a working towards peace, equality, simplicity, care of the environment and care for each other.  In these times, many people feel these leadings!

What's New

With the addition of references to our influnces from Fellowship of Friends of African Descent, Trenton Meeting has approved this Racial Justice Minute on the Ninth Day of the Eighth Month 2020:

Racial Justice Minute

Approved 9 Eighth Month 2020

 

We were appalled and sickened by the brutal killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 by a white police officer.  The fact that this has sparked a fire of outrage all over the country and the world indicates that it is time to finally end racial injustice.

A Minute in support of the nationwide 2020 Poor People's Campaign was approved at Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business on 10 Fifth Month 2020.

"Given the historic connection that Quakers have had to the Poor People’s Campaign and the continued need for a moral call toward economic, racial and environmental justice in the United States, Trenton Meeting of Friends in Trenton, New Jersey endorses the 2020 Poor People’s Campaign and encourages other Monthly Meetings in our Quarter and beyond to do the same.”
