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.

We have a First Day School during Worship on the first and third Sundays of the month. Children of all ages are welcome at Worship every week. The First Day School room is available for parents or their personal caregiver on days when there is not First Day School. We appreciate having children among us!

Anyone and everyone is welcome to worship with us, whether seeking a spiritual home, looking for a Sunday school for children, or visiting as a member of another religious group. Come as you are.  We won't pressure you to join us.  Although the Society of Friends began as a purely Christian group, many Friends now consider themselves universalists and learn from many religious traditions.   

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!
