About Deep River Friends Meeting

Deep River Friends Meeting, established in 1754, is a Quaker church in High Point, N.C. We gather for worship on Sundays at 11 a.m. In a world of greed, endless hurry and violence, we believe there is a better way of life. This is made possible by Jesus Christ who shows us the infinite love and mercy of God, and who accompanies us day-by-day, helping us find goodness among the difficult choices that constantly confront us.

You are invited to explore this kind of life among “Friends.” Friends have no creeds – no official words can substitute for a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Scroll to the bottom of this page for FAQs.

What to Expect

Can anyone visit Deep River?

What is Meeting for Worship?

What is Open Worship?

Will there be an offering?

Yes, there will be an offering, but we do not require visitors, attenders or members to give. You may give if you feel led to do so, but please do not feel pressured to give.

What about communion?

Will I have to introduce myself?

We know visiting a church for the first time can make you nervous, but don’t worry – we’ll never ask you to stand up, raise your hand or speak if you’re visiting for the first time. We simply ask those that visit us for the first time to fill out a visitor card located on the back of each pew. Our members are friendly and will likely say hello if they don’t know you. We want you to feel welcome.

Will my kids have a place to go?

Student Ministries at Deep River Friends Meeting includes opportunities for nursery, elementary, middle and high school-aged and college students. We have our Deep River Elementary Age Ministry (DREAM), Deep River Young People (DRYP) and College Age Deep River Experience (CADRE). Our prayer and plan are that, while these are three distinct groups in our meeting, that they will each feel connected to each other and the larger meeting and find their place at Deep River. Nursery is available during Sunday School and Meeting for Worship. Children of the meeting leave for Children’s Church during the 11 a.m. service.

What should I wear?

Where do I park?

Parking at Deep River is simple. There are two parking lots – a smaller lot at the front of the meeting house and a larger one in the rear. You may choose to enter the property from Penny Road or Wendover Avenue, but both lots are accessible from either entrance. We recommend parking in the front lot if it’s your first time since it’s much easier to get to the meeting house from there.
