Building a Friends Meeting

Meeting Resource

There is more to a Friends meeting than an hour of silent worship on Sundays. A vital meeting challenges us to spiritual growth every day of the week. It gathers us into a loving, supportive fellowship. It creates sacred space in which we can find healing, strength, and vision. It sends us out into the world to serve and to witness to the possibility of transformation, peace, and divine love.
As you think about building (or rebuilding) your meeting or worship group, you might want to plan your Sunday schedule to include each of the elements outlined in Building a Friends Meeting.pdf.
