Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends
A Quaker Community in Medford, New Jersey

Medford Friends Meeting

Recently, Medford Friends Meeting has received a few messages from people who were distressed by the Black Lives Matter sign in front of our meetinghouse.  We placed that sign on our lawn as an expression of love for the many people who feel our society, our laws, and our institutions, have not valued them.  We welcome the opportunity to have a conversation with anyone who would like to share their feelings about this in a spirit of love and respect.  If you would like to meet with us, please contact us at 609-953-8914. 

Due to Restrictions on Public Gatherings, No Events are being held at the Meetinghouse at this time.

"Medford Friends Meeting joins with people of goodwill everywhere in affirming the way of love. We denounce the normalization of hate and violence in our society. We commit to working with others to build trust and understanding in our wider community." - Medford Monthly Meeting 2018

Welcome to the website of Medford Friends Meeting.  We invite you to spend some time with us, whether it is exploring our Meeting and Quakerism on these pages, or worship with us on Sunday!  Medford is located in southern NJ, about 18 miles east of Philadelphia, PA.  (See the map to the right.)

Medford Meeting is an active, diverse community, offering opportunities for spiritual enrichment and friendship.

What's New

A number of years ago, Mary Ann Bacon was taking a walk in Mount. Holly, New Jersey, during her lunch hour, when she passed the John Woolman Memorial.  Being a Quaker, Mary Ann knew about John Woolman, but what particularly drew her interest was the beautiful property.  She loved nature and gardening, and so she knocked on the door and asked if she could help.  That day began her long relationship with the Memorial as a volunteer and as a board member.

The Peace and Social Concerns Committee members are prioritizing their focus on poverty and food insecurity. This is due to increased hardships families have faced due to the pandemic.  Donations have been made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Head Start families and the Al-Nasr Mosque.

The pandemic has also affected another of the committee’s projects. The welcome bags distributed to the migrant workers this past spring contained masks made by meeting members along with the usual personal care products etc.
