Morningside Quaker Meeting

Morningside Monthly Meeting
of the Religious Society of Friends

Morningside Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, formed in 1973, is a welcoming, diverse community of individuals living the Quaker testimonies of equality, integrity, simplicity, stewardship of the earth, and peace.

We gather for silent worship every First Day (Sunday) morning at 11 o’clock. Traditionally, we meet at Riverside Church in Manhattan. Currently we hold hybrid meetings, with some members attending via Zoom and others gathering together and connecting from Riverside. All are welcome.

Meeting for Worship

Morningside Meeting will hold our next meeting for worship on November 26 at 11 a.m.: a hybrid in-person/remote meeting for worship, followed by afterwords, announcements, and introductions of visitors and those new to Morningside. The virtual meeting room will be open at 10:45 a.m. for Friends and attenders to begin to gather. If you are new to Morningside, or not on the email list, and wish to attend, please email: morningsidequakermeeting@gmail.com.

We welcome children to come to Meeting with Children on the 13th floor on Sundays from 11:00 until shortly before noon. If you have any questions, please email morningsidequakermeeting@gmail.com.

You are invited to join Morningsiders for breakfast this Sunday in the Riverside Cafe, Riverside Church, at 9:30am. Just select your breakfast and tell the cashier you are with the Quakers and the meeting picks up the tab. It’s a lovely time to get to know one another, to ask questions and to get ready for the day. Please join us!

For those who wish to participate at Morningside worship in person, please note the following:

  • In-person Meeting for Worship will occur at Riverside Church on the 12th Floor.
