Welcome to Newton Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. Informally we are referred to as “Quakers”. Our silent meeting for worship is approximately one hour in length. Meeting for Worship is held the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month at 10:30 AM; starting in September worship will be every Sunday. Our meeting for worship with the attention to business is held at 12:00 PM (at the rise of worship) on the second Sunday. The Meeting shares a unique partnership with the Garden Project and a local eco-charter school. We hope that the listed links may provide clarification on Quakerism as well as our Meeting’s activities.
