Quaker Worship at Friends Center

On Sundays at Friends Center you can find Quakers at worship.

Central Philadelphia Meeting has worshiped here since 1856.  You will find a community diverse in age and race and sexual orientation each on a unique spiritual journey fostered lovingly by the meeting community.  Every Sunday the meeting welcomes visitors who come just to see what a Quaker meeting is like.

Worship is held on Sundays at 11:00.
Children are welcome.

Worship at Central Philadelphia Meeting is based in silent waiting on the “still small voice.”  (1 Kings 19:12)  Each worshiper opens her or his heart to God’s guiding presence.  While there is no minister and no prepared sermon, anyone among the worshipers may stand and give a brief message of the workings of the Spirit.   Sometimes the entire hour is passed in worshipful silence.
