Quaker Meeting

Quakers of the North Shore worship every Sunday from 10-11 a.m. at the Glen Urquhart School:  74 Hart Street, Beverly Farms, Mass.  It is an unprogrammed Quaker Meeting.  There is no Pastor (or leader) save the spirit of God in and among us.  Our worship is primarily silent.  When a worshiper is moved, it may include a brief, spoken ministry offered in a ‘spirit of worship.’  Friends gather together quietly, awaiting the experience of God’s presence. 

People in our community hail from the traditional tribal lands of the Pawtucket and Massachusett now called Manchester, Gloucester, Beverly, Ipswich, Rockport, Salem, Lynn and Marblehead.  Whether you have worshiped in other Quaker (Friends) Meetings or not, we welcome you to join us.  If you are new to Quakers, someone will be happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have.  Send an email to:  First Day School, our Children’s Program, consists of forest walks near the Glen Urquhart School led by Jessica Kagle from the Kestrel Foundation.  Blessings To You
