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.

Welcome.
