News & Announcements
This year, we have 3 events on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018.
Sunrise Easter worship at Bartram's Garden: begin gathering in the meadow near the barn at 6:15-20am. (If you can offer a ride there and back, coordinate with Amy)
After months of conversation and exploration, Friends of West Philadelphia Friends Meeting have decided on a new location, and a new time for worship! Our new home will be at 4718 Windsor Ave, and worship will be at 10:30am on Sunday!
From our very beginnings as West Philadelphia Worship Group, we've celebrated Advent together - a time of coming together, waiting, finding Light in the darkness and celebrating together. This year, your Advent planners (Rosanna, Amy, Pamela, and Elizabeth) have activities for each Sunday of Advent, after worship. Advent begins on Sunday, November 27th. We'll also be singing on Sundays, and plan to go caroling in the neighborhood on Thursday, December 15th at 8PM! (Meet up at the WPFM space.) We have a few carols we've been practicing!
Friends are invited to meet for our annual Easter Sunrise worship at Bartram's Gardens. Sunrise is at 6:51am, and so Friends are invited to gather at 6:30am (or earlier) on the hillside overlooking the Schuylkill River (to the left of the Bartram's Garden buildings.)
We'll have worship as usual at 1:30pm in the Squirrel Hill building, followed by a special multigenerational Spiritual Fellowship activity - an Easter Egg Hunt!
West Philadelphia Friends Meeting is now having Meeting for Business on the second Sunday of the month! Join in the care of the community on April 12, May 10, June 14, and so on! We meet at the rise of worship, around 2:45/3PM.
After over a year of discernment, West Philadelphia Friends Meeting is now a preparative meeting, under the care of Green Street Monthly Meeting!
