Wilton Quaker Meeting

Welcome!

Wilton Quaker Meeting worships in the unprogrammed Quaker tradition. Meeting for worship is held every Sunday at 10:00 am. See our "Calendar of Events" here.

Our meeting is open to all and represents a very broad range of beliefs. 

All are welcome! We are family friendly. Child care is provided.

Renting our Meetinghouse

Our meetinghouse is available for rental for community activities, classes, weddings and other occasions. For more information click on About | Rentals .

Advices and Queries

Friends do not have a creed but we do have a set of spiritual Queries which help us individually and as communities to consider our spiritual condition. We also have Advices, based on the spiritual wisdom gleaned over the years. Here is a sample. We will post a new ones from time to time. 

Do you take part as often as you can in meetings for church affairs? Are you familiar enough with our church government to contribute to its disciplined processes? Do you consider difficult questions with an informed mind as well as a generous and loving spirit? Are you prepared to let your insights and personal wishes take their place alongside those of others or be set aside as the meeting seeks the right way forward? If you cannot attend, uphold the meeting prayerfully.

In December 2017 Wilton Monthly Meeting officially changed its name to Wilton Quaker Meeting.

We wanted to emphasize our Quaker roots. It is by our Quaker name that most people outside the Religious Society of Friends know us.

We were also getting a little tired of explaining to seekers that we really meet every week for worship and only monthly for business.

Please join us any Sunday at 10:00 am for worship. We are family friendly so bring the kids!

Worship at Wilton Quaker Meeting

If you have never before attended an unprogrammed Friends (Quaker) meeting for worship, your first meeting may surprise you . . . 

Public

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.
