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?

    Here's a very brief overview. We welcome personal conversations to explore these essentials more deeply.

    • The Light Within: Commune directly with the Divine through the Light within.
    • The Gathered Meeting: Experience collective communion with the Divine as a worshipping community.
    • Continuing Revelation: Embrace the ongoing presence of the Spirit for healing, renewal, inspiration, and guidance.
    • "Let Your Life Speak": Live outwardly in accordance with inward truths and testimonies.
    • The Commandment of Love: Love God, love one another, even love your enemies.
    • Direct Experience: Base beliefs on personal experiences while respecting the testimony of others and the legacy of our tradition.
    • And more: Visit our  About Us page to learn more about the Quaker way.

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