Brooklyn Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

110 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201 212-777-8866


The Quaker way of worship is a Meeting of people who seek the inner Light. We sit in silence - no minister leads us; no formal prayers are said nor hymns sung; no religious symbols are displayed.
We believe in divine guidance. We wait for the holy spirit to speak in and through us. This voice we hear is neither an opinion nor a political observation. It comes from the deepest part of the soul. It fills both speaker and listener with profound joy, and touches on the eternal.
After sitting in silence and allowing for a suitable period of waiting, if someone is so moved to speak, his or her words may enrich the understanding of those present.
Both our silence and our spoken words bring us closer together and to God.
