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.

Quakers and Peace Action Network Anzac Day Peace Vigil held in Nelson  
Quakers in Nelson were joined by friends from the newly formed Peace Action Network on Anzac Day, Sunday April 25th to commemorate all loss of life in war, combatants and non-combatants. Those present held posters saying "make peace a way of life" and "honour the war dead by ending war". . .  
One Quaker's View on:
On being a good ancestor : what we bequeath to our children and grandchildren.  By Jan Marsh
After the deaths of both our parents we, their five children, received some money, quite a significant amount from the sale of their house and their savings. They had not received any inheritance from their parents, there was very little left from our grandparents' lives, but our parents were very clear. . . .
