West Philadelphia Friends Meeting

West Philadelphia Friends Meeting is a Quaker meeting in the Cedar Park neighborhood of West Philadelphia. The group began as the West Philly Worship Group in 2008, and decided to become West Philadelphia Friends Meeting in September, 2013. We are a preparative meeting under the care of Green Street Monthly Meeting, as of January 2015.

We're wanting to be together more than ever these days, so West Philadelphia Friends Meeting has converged around a hybrid format that began in February, 2022. Our meeting time remains unchanged - 10:30-11:30am on Sundays, with 30 minutes of fellowship after worship.

Those who would like to join by Zoom can do so here:

In light of the spread of COVID-19 and the risk it poses for all of us and especially those among us who are immunocompromised or older adults, as of the week of 3/22/20, we will hold Meeting for Worship online, via Zoom. The link is sent out to those on our email list. We will not be meeting at our Windsor Ave location for the coming few weeks pending more knowledge and testing and control of the virus.

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!

Public

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!
