Madison Friends Meeting
We welcome you to explore the Madison Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. In worship we gather for an hour to listen for the presence of Spirit within-- our inward teacher. We wait in the power of this silent communion which is the foundation of our worship.
The spiritual quality of our faith and practice has been enriched over the years by the full participation and leadership of all Friends and friends. We celebrate the inclusion of individuals, couples, or families of all backgrounds and constellations in every aspect of the life of our Meeting.
