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.

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

Quakers in Nelson back the BDS call to boycott Hewlett Packard  
Quakers in Nelson have since 2018 backed the boycott of goods produced by Israel in occupied Palestinian Territories. In May 2021, we extended our support for the 16 year Boycott, Divestment & Sanction movement by calling on all Quakers and others to boycott Hewlett Packard. . .  
One Quaker's View on:
A history of concern for the Palestinian people    by Christine Gillespie
5th June 1967 marked the end of the 6 Day War , which left the land of Palestine shattered and 300,000 people displaced. In commemorating the devastation which continues to this day, we reflect on the history of Quaker concern for the people of Palestine, which dates from the 1860s. . .
