Welcome!


We are a community of seekers. Quakers have no dogma or creed. A fundamental Quaker belief is that there is "that of God in everyone." For more information about Quakers and Live Oak Friends Meeting in particular, please click here.

The Meeting was founded in 1954, and has been growing ever since. Our meetinghouse is the conception of James Turrell, a well-known artist who is also a Quaker. The architect is Leslie Elkins. Many generous donors from Houston, around the world, and within the Meeting helped us fund the meetinghouse.

The Meeting has about 75 attenders each week (plus or minus). Child care is provided. We have programs for both adult and children's religious education in addition to Meeting for Worship. Live Oak Friends Meeting is affiliated with Bayou Quarterly Meeting.

Live Oak Friends Meeting affirms that of God in everyone, and welcomes all those in loving relationships.

Skyspace viewings are cancelled until further notice pending repairs.

We regret any inconvenience that this may cause.
