What is a PT Quaker, you might ask. Well, let me give you a brief description, then offer a longer explanation.

After any years of meeting in a rented space, the Port Townsend Friends Meeting has found a meetinghouse.
We purchased a building that used to be the Church of Christ church at Sheridan and 19th Streets. The two Church of Christ congregations in town joined together and are now using the church on Walker Avenue. Our Meeting acquired the building on August 14th.
Our Quaker Meeting is excited about getting this meetinghouse, and see many opportunities for use of this space. We are thankful for the support of many Friends, who have been offered both financial gifts and spiritual encouragement. We ask all Friends to hold us in the Light as we move ahead in this new meetinghouse.
Here are some pictures of our major changes as we transformed the building from Church of Christ with its adult immersion baptismal font into a Quaker Meeting with its traditional hospitality.
