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.
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 carolling in the neighborhood one non-Sunday day (date TBD.) We have a few carols we want to practice!
West Philadelphia Friends Meeting is having a day of fellowship at Amy's farm in Cheney, PA! Come for any piece of that day.
... because "Sundaes on First Day" doesn't have the same ring...
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!
After worship on April 3rd, please join us for a spring cleaning of our worship space! We'll start around 3pm, and steam clean the rugs, wash windows, sweep and vacuum, etc!
Worship with us!
Worship is 1:30PM on Sundays
