Buffalo Quaker Meeting seeks to exemplify Quaker testimonies through daily life in Western New York. We emphasizes hard work, simple living and generous giving in vibrant community. We are committed to integrity, equality and the peaceful settlement of disputes.
Founded in 1939, our meeting follows the Quaker tradition of an unprogrammed meeting for worship. Participants gather in community and listen in silent expectation for a divine message. We recognize that each person has a unique connection to the Spirit of God and thus do not rely on designated ministers, mandated dogma or a set liturgy. Instead, every participant in the meeting for worship is able to minister as led by the Spirit.
You are welcome here!
