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. 

We need to guard against under-valuing the material expressions of spiritual things. It is easy to make a form of our very rejection of forms. And in particular we need to ask ourselves whether we are endeavoring to make all the daily happenings and doings of life which we call “secular” minister to the spiritual. It is a bold and colossal claim that we put forward—that the whole of life is sacramental, that there are innumerable “means of grace” by which God is revealed and communicated—through nature and through human fellowship and through a thousand things that may become the “outward and visible sign” of an “inward and spiritual grace.”

A. Barrett Brown, 1932

What's New

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 . . .

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 Quaker Meeting are delighted to let you know that we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.

Any children attending Meeting or First Day School (Sunday 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!
