Welcome.

Nau mai haere mai.

Quakers in Nelson is a faith group whose spirituality is simple, radical and contemporary, committed to working for social justice and peace.

We try to live the Quaker way – peaceably, simply and sustainably, with integrity, recognising all as equal.

You are welcome to visit our meetings without commitment. If you decide to make our Meeting your spiritual home we offer a safe, loving community. We aim to help one another to live a better life.

 

You are invited to join us at our Meetings, 10am each Sunday at the Quaker Meeting House, 30 Nile Street, Nelson.  

We also meet  every 2nd Sunday of the month at 10am at the Family Service Centre, 27 Talbot Street, Motueka.

 

Welcome.

Nau mai haere mai.

Welcome to families, children and young people, and our values based children's and families' meetings.

Do you want to raise non-violent children rich in empathy and compassion, yet able to be true to themselves? Do you want to parent peaceably and respectfully? Do you want your children to find and value their inner quide? So do we.

 

Welcome.

Nau mai haere mai.

 

We welcome diversity. People of diverse sexual orientation and gender expression are welcome.

 

 

News
Quaker Meeting for Worship is back in the Meeting House.  On-going Zoom under discussion. 
We are once more able to open our Meeting House. We meet again from Sunday 17th October at 30 Nile St. Nelson. We may still meet by Zoom as Friends with health problems, and elderly Friends may need to shelter if Nelson experiences a Covid outbreak. We will post  our decision here.

Classic Quaker View from the Archives:             Spring again!  by Jan Marsh
Once again, the early birds are waking me with their calls. I can feel the change happening as I'm more ready to get up these mornings and less likely to huddle under the duvets (yes, two in winter!) resisting the sharp bite of a frosty morning. A pair of tuis were in the pear tree this afternoon, glossy and fat . . .
