Memphis Friends Meeting

A warm welcome from the Memphis Friends Meeting (Quakers)

Who We Are​

The Memphis Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends is an unprogrammed, non-pastoral Quaker Meeting.

Unprogrammed worship is silent worship. We enter the meeting room silently. Our first task when worship begins is to center down, to still the clamor of the world, to turn our attention to the inner voice.

The best way to find out if silent, or unprogrammed, worship speaks to your condition is to experience it. Everyone is welcome! We affirm and acknowledge the wholeness of all people, including their gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations.

Our Quaker umbrella organizations are The Southern Appalachian Yearly Meeting and Association (SAYMA) and the Friends General Conference (FGC).
