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.

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.

You are welcome here. We are an LGBTQI friendly Meeting.
