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 became West Philadelphia Friends Meeting in September, 2013. We are a preparative meeting under the care of Green Street Monthly Meeting, as of January 2015.

What's New

Friends are invited to meet for our annual Easter Sunrise worship at Bartram's Gardens. Sunrise is at 6:21am, and so Friends are invited to gather at 5:50am (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 fellowship activity - an Easter Egg Hunt! (For any families coming for the egg hint, it should be around 2:45)

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!
