Our Invitation

Spiritual Experience

Do you seek to know God directly (however you define the Divine)? So do we. Visit our Worship and Spirituality page to learn more.

Spiritual Community

Do you yearn for a loving fellowship in the Spirit in which all are welcome? We strive to be such a community. Visit our Community Life page to learn more. 

Spiritual Activism

Do you hope to ground your efforts to stand with the suffering and oppressed and to mend the world in the strength and guidance the Holy Spirit? This is the Quaker way. Visit our Mending the World page to learn more.

Welcome to Our Worship

Our worship lasts about an hour. Instead of hymns, Bible readings, and a prepared sermon, we worship in silent expectation of the Spirit. During this sacred time, some folks may feel prompted by the Spirit to stand and speak.

  • More about Quaker worship: visit our Worship web page.
  • Hybrid Worship: Join us via Zoom for virtual worship.

    What Do We Believe?

    At the heart of our faith is the belief, based on our experience, that each of us can commune directly with God, however you define the Divine, and that the community also can know God's love, peace, joy, and guidance, directly as a community.

    There's lots more, of course. Visit our About Us page to learn more about the Quaker way.

        You're Invited

        We invite you to join us in worship and fellowship. May your journey with Central Philadelphia Quaker Meeting be enriching and spiritually fulfilling.
