Quaker HouseQuakers believe that there is that of God in every person. In this spirit, we welcome all people regardless of age, race, differing abilities, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

Ann Arbor Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed Meeting affiliated with Friends General Conference. Our Meetings for Worship are held in expectant silence, without a program or pastor. Each worshiper seeks to listen to the spirit of God within. If that spirit brings to any of us a message that seems clearly to speak to the condition of others, we may rise to give that message as vocal ministry.

Visitors are welcome at either the early or the 11am meeting for worship. The early meeting usually has an attendance of about 20, and tends to have little vocal ministry. The late meeting may be attended by as many as 80, and often has more vocal ministry. On fifth Sundays we combine the two meetings and start at 10:00.

Children are invited to join their families in meeting for worship. Children attending 11:00 meeting may choose to join other children and volunteer adult leaders for the various activities of First Day School (Sunday School), which begins at about 11:00 (10:00 on fifth Sundays).

Clerks: Lynn Drickamer and Nancy Taylor

Two Sunday Afternoon Seekers Sessions
Open to anyone interested in learning more about Friends.

April 8: Quakers Who Are We? Friends may explore such topics as the beginnings of Quakerism, silent worship, and Quaker testimonies, as well as share personal spiritual journeys.

April 22: Attender to Member. How and why do people join a Quaker Meeting? Friends from diverse religious backgrounds will share what led them to become a member of a Friends Meeting.

12:45 - 2:00 in Quaker House Living Room (1416 Hill Street).

Each session will allow ample time for questions and discussion. Come to both sessions or just one. Light refreshments and childcare will be provided.

We no longer have printed weekly handouts and monthly newsletters, and will not for the time being. On a temporary basis, we are trying to keep Friends informed of Meeting events and acitivities via a weekly email with a Meeting calendar and brief descriptions of events as well as updates to this website. Announcements relating to Meeting activities and schedule changes should be sent to

If you wish to receive the weekly email and have not previously received the weekly handout via email, ask to subscribe at
