Who are South Jersey Quakers?
We are a collaboration of Friends from three different parts of South Jersey that we call Quarters. Quarters are the Quaker equivalent to a Catholic Diocese or a LDS Stake. They are named as such because we meet for worship, business, and fun every three months or quarter. The Quarters that make up our organization are:
Burlington Quarter - Which is in most of Burlington and into Ocean Counties.
Haddonfield Quarter - Which is in Camden, Atlantic and part of Burlington County.
Salem Quarter - Which is in Gloucester, Salmen, Cumberland, and Cape May Counties.
Our first and foremost goal is to raise the visibility of Quakerism in Southern New Jersey, welcome new seekers, and provide resources for current members.
Some of the services we provide are:
Pre-registration for events – We can simplify your logistics and planning.
One page website – Great for meetings without the people power to create your own website; just provide us with some basic information and photos. This can be supplemented by a Facebook account, for upcoming events, etc. Example one-page site
Newsletter – Send us announcements for your upcoming events and reports of recent activities, for inclusion in the SouthJerseyQuakers monthly newsletter now reaching Friends and others across Burlington, Haddonfield and Salem Quarters. Then, look for other Friends’ activities on topics of concern to you. The due date is the 20th of the month. Email your meeting news and events to: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us using the form below.
Videos - We can record your guest speakers and other special events as well as interviews about your meeting’s history, then edit and post them on your website and/or our SouthJerseyQuakers YouTube Channel.
