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.

Our Friend Patricia Morrisey died on Wednesday 21st October, in her 89th Year.
Patricia died after living with illness with great grace, humour, and an inquisitive spirit about what was coming next. She preferred to care about others and offered kind support to all who needed it, whether over a cuppa, a game of scrabble or with a listening ear.  . . .  
One Quaker's View on:
Believing in God is just another conspiracy theory? By Jim Batson
My friend and I were sitting in the sun, drinking coffee and eating cakes. We were talking about this and that including conspiracy theories. I said, “I have been thinking about God and thinking that a good topic for discussion would be `Believing in God is just another conspiracy theory.’" . . .
