Updated! Effective April 24th: In-Person Meetinghouse Safety Guidelines

The ‘silent’ meetings started by George Fox and his followers are still the center of Quaker life.  You are welcome here for a quiet hour in communion before God, during which anyone may ‘speak out of the silence’ if moved by the Spirit.  [See also here.]   On some occasions, there may be no one who speaks. On other occasions, there may be one or several messages.  If you enter after a meeting for worship has begun, you are welcome to quietly take a seat.  (You may wish to view a lovely, little ‘book’ at http://ComingToAQuakerMeeting.uk)

You are welcome to join our Sunday 10 a.m. unprogrammed worship via Zoom or in-person following safety guidelines published here, and posted at the meetinghouse. If you wish to join with us in our Zoom worship, we encourage you to email Zoom [at] ConcordFriendsMeeting [dot] org and someone will call you to answer questions and provide an introduction.

Climate Challenge:  New England Yearly Meeting’s Earthcare Witness Ministry has launched the “Transforming Love Calculator Project”.  We have been challenged to reduce our carbon footprint, individually and corporately, by at least 10% this year with the help of the ‘Footprint and Action Calculator’.

We meet for worship every Sunday morning in our meetinghouse at 11 Oxbow Pond Road in Canterbury, NH.   For directions, go to the Finding us page.  For more information, go to the FAQ page that drops down beneath the About tab.  Please come and visit.

Our schedule on a typical Sunday follows.  On second Sundays of the month, the end of our regular worship service is followed by a pot luck lunch and then a Meeting for Worship with attention to Business.  Other programs may follow worship, particularly on fourth Sundays of the month.
