As of mid-August, 2012, we became a Monthly Meeting. We also now have charitable status. We are able to accept memberships and to take marriages under our care.
We do not have a Meeting House. This is not unusual for smaller meetings or worship groups. We are of sufficient numbers, however, that meeting in someone’s home is not always practical (though we have our summer meetings at homes). We therefore rent space weekly on Sunday at Sadleir House, and find that the former library space has a warm, welcoming feel to it.. We are able to store our sign, information kit, and tea kit at the facility.
We have a library of Quaker-related books under the care of Mary and Greg Conchelos, also stored at Sadleir House.
Those who attend come from as far away as Lindsay and Hastings. Some of us are close enough to bicycle or bus (there is a stop at the first corner south of Sadleir House). We are all mindful of the environmental impact of the automobile in these times so carpooling or multi-purpose trips are common.
We have an active outreach/program committee who plans our discussion topics and events. Times and places for these are listed in our calendar.

We offer a program for children every Sunday on request. Parents may go out with the children, or join in with the silent Meeting. We seek to nurture the inner sense of Spirit through a positive experience in trust and creative activity, with some silent time and sharing time.
On fourth Sundays we offer the Earthcare curriculum. At present we are following a guide called Let the Earth Teach Thee, with 5 basic themes: Web of Life, Creation, Exploration, Appreciation, and Preservation.
At all times the program for children includes playful learning, stories, singing and/or outdoor exploration and cooperative games. If possible please let us know that you are coming. Check the calendar for specific dates. For details please phone 705-749-1544
