Welcome

Published on

…to the website of the Vancouver Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of  Friends (Quakers).

Quakers share a way of life, not a set of beliefs. We base our faith on silent worship, and our own experiences of the divine.

NOTE: Due to Covid-19, we are not holding Meeting for Worship at the Vancouver Meeting House until further notice. We hope to help our community and our world stay healthy and well! We are hoping to try a Virtual Meeting this week. Instructions to join:

Virtual Meeting for Worship

For those who love to sing on First Sundays, Ruth Walmsley will be hosting singing on zoom prior to Meeting starting at 9:45 AM. Come one and all!

Online Meeting for Worship begins on Sunday at 10:30 AM by zoom webinar. All conventions of our regular Meeting for Worship remain the same. If you would like a basic orientation to zoom, please plan to join at 10:20 AM.

You only need a laptop, tablet or phone to participate. Zoom does not require you to download any software if you are using a computer. Smartphone users are encouraged to download the zoom app. You may also dial into the meeting using a landline.

Meeting for Worship is a “silent waiting” and a search for spiritual communion. We have no pastor or spiritual director. Ideally, the silence is broken only when someone feels divinely moved to share some personal insight with the rest of the Meeting. Prepared statements and long messages may detract from the spirit of Meeting for Worship. For more information about joining us in Quaker Worship, and answers to common questions, please feel free to look over our page for Newcomers.

Childcare is available during Meeting. After Meeting for Worship, we have a potluck on the first Sunday of each month, and a informal Newcomers group on the third Sunday of each month.

Meeting for Worship is also held on less-frequent schedules in North Burnaby. Feel free to join one of our mailing lists to stay informed about events in our community.
