New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.
Quakers from diverse nations and ethnicities gather in a candlelight service.

Connecting with the Global Quaker Movement

There are more than 360,000 Friends in the world, with incredibly diverse theologies, worship styles and cultural backgrounds. New England Yearly Meeting helps connect its members to the broader Religious Society of Friends by holding membership in and appointing representatives to Quaker organizations, as well as by nurturing our close relationship with Cuban Quakers.

A Bridge of Love with Cuban Quakers

For more than 20 years, New England and Cuban Friends have celebrated un Puente de Amor, a Bridge of Love, between our two Yearly Meetings. Overcoming numerous barriers, we have established a strong tradition of intervisitation to one another’s annual sessions and local meetings.

NEYM’s Puente de Amigos Committee cares for our side of this bridge — arranging hospitality and visits for Cuban Friends traveling in New England, readying NEYM delegations to Cuba for the spiritual and logistical challenges, and sharing news via a regular newsletter.
