Our belief in the divine spark in each individual person involves complete respect for the soul of a child…. The most important duty facing parents who take religion seriously is to hand on to their children those things that they hold to be true and good. L’Education Religieuse des Enfants, France Yearly Meeting, 1963 (from New England Yearly Meeting Faith &Practice, 1985. )
We at Durham Meeting see children and youth as valuable members of our community and offer them full consideration at our gatherings. To this end, DFM employs a Youth Minister to seek out the needs of children, youth and their parents and to provide oversight to meet their needs.
We have a number of different Sunday School classes, Young Friends (Youth Group) and family activities.
