Birmingham Friends Meeting

Welcome to Birmingham Friends Meeting

We are an active, caring community of families and individuals of all ages who come together to worship in the tradition of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Each Sunday we gather in Meeting for Worship to listen for the still, small voice of God stirring within us. Meeting for Worship includes our children for the first 30 minutes after which they attend First Day (Sunday) School. Nursery care is available for younger children.

We are guided in our lives by our Quaker Testimonies on Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship. We welcome those who wish to join us.

“It takes a village,” and there is a new one in Chester County!

We refer to the West Chester Area Refugee Resettlement Project. This was but an idea in October 2015, and by the end of the year over a dozen faith communities and individuals had come together to commit to sponsoring the placement of a refugee family in this area and to doing what was necessary to ensure its transition to a successful American life. Members of Birmingham, West Chester, Willistown, and Wilmington Monthly Meetings form an essential part of this “village”.

We are very pleased to report that the Isaac family arrived safely on July 25 and we are now helping them resettle in the West Chester area.

The family is Congolese and consists of parents, two daughters (20 and 13), and three sons (15 year old twins and a 9 year old). The family fled the DRC nineteen years ago and has been living in a refugee camp in Tan­zania. The Isaacs are beginning the daunting task of adjusting to a totally unfamiliar environment while also having to learn a new language. Please hold this family in the Light as they begin this journey .
