Friendship Community Partnership

Five congregations – three predominately African American and two predominately white – make up the Friendship Community Partnership. Through partnership activities and joint worship services, individuals from diverse traditions and backgrounds come together to build community and relationships.


Members of the meditation community meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday in the Plum Village tradition of peace activist and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. We enjoy sitting and walking meditations, as well as readings and sharing. Beginners and seasoned meditators welcome.

Caring Friends

Through Caring Friends, New Gardeners provide loving support for others in the congregation and in the larger community. If you enjoy cooking for others, serving the homeless, writing notes or knitting, you might enjoy taking part in Caring Friends.

Meals for the Homeless

Volunteers from New Garden regularly prepare and serve meals at Greensboro Urban Ministry.

Healing Prayer Group

The Prayer Group meets weekly at Friends Homes Guilford. Participants write cards of support and condolences to those in the New Garden community who are facing illness or loss. It’s a time for coming together as Friends to hold others in the Light.
