Wilton Monthly Meeting
Worship at Wilton Quaker Meeting
If you have never before attended an unprogrammed Friends (Quaker) meeting for worship, your first meeting may surprise you . . .
Sunday October 1 is World Quaker Day. COME see what Quakers are doing around the world
Your image of Quakers may be from the box of oats or from famous depictions like Gary Cooper in the award-winning movie “Friendly Persuasion,” but Quakers are right here in our own community as well! The nearest active group is the Wilton Quaker Meeting at 317 New Canaan Road in Wilton
On July 15, 2017, we had our first celebration of our 75-year anniversary. We had a wonderful party that included music, poetry, food, dancing, yoga, and a talk on the history of the Meeting. We were very happy to be joined in the celebration by several old friends. Stephanie Kim of the News Times reported on the event. A copy of the history and a link to the News Times article complete with pictures may be accessed by clicking on the title of this news article and clicking the resulting links at the bottom of the page.
The First Day School Committee and Wilton Monthly Meeting are delighted to let you know that, beginning January 29th, 2017 we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.
Any children attending Meeting or First Day School can now choose to sit on a rug on the floor in front of the fireplace, Other children as well as one friendly adult will be there too! In First Day School, the children are each creating a "sit-upon" to make their space their own as well as a bit comfier. We will have a few extras for visitors.
A coalition of community, religious and university organizations, including Wilton Monthly Meeting, has organized to make people aware of the injustice of solitary confinement.
We are organizing local film screenings and displays of solitary confinement cells.
