Children

Putney: Friends (Quakers) have developed the Queries to assist us to consider prayerfully the true source of spiritual strength and the extent to which the conduct of our lives gives witness to our Christian faith. In Putney Meeting, it is our practice to consider a set of Queries and Advises each month. In August on the first Sunday, the following will be considered in both our early and late Meetings: Let us share with our children a sense of adventure, of wonder, and of trust and let them know that, in facing the mysteries of life, they are surrounded by love. Do children receive the loving care of your meeting? Does the meeting nurture their religious life and give them an understanding of the principles and practices of Friends? Are you an example to your children in your faithfulness to the ideals you profess? Do you promote your children's moral and spiritual development by loving oversight of their education, recreation, and social activities? Do you listen to children, recognizing that the Spirit may lead them along paths you have not foreseen? Do you assist them to assume their rightful responsibilities in the home, the meeting, and the community? Putney Friends Meeting meets at 8:30 and 10:30 every Sunday morning. Childcare is available at 10:30 a.m. For more information visit
