Meeting Room at Portland Friends MeetingWelcome to Portland Friends Meeting.  Please browse our site and we invite you to join us for Meeting for Worship at 1837 Forest Avenue, in Portland, Maine!

At the core of Quaker Faith is our belief that there is that of God in every person. It is our trust that all people can have a direct inward experience of divine love, healing and guidance. We have learned that through responding to this guidance we can come to have lives reflecting the light and love of God. This is the hope, the invitation and the promise that gathers us as a people called “Friends.”

Portland Friends Meeting is an open and affirming community which welcomes attenders from many faith traditions.  Join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30.
