Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Santa Monica Friends Meeting

Welcome to Santa Monica Friends Meeting!

Santa Monica Friends Meeting is part of the Religious Society of Friends (also known as Quakers). Our meetings for worship are held in expectant silence with no formal program or clergy. Each worshiper seeks to listen to the Spirit of God within. If that spirit brings to any of us a message that seems clearly to speak to the condition of others, we may rise to give that message as vocal ministry.

As Friends we endeavor to translate our religious beliefs into everyday life, seeking to “let our lives speak.” Simplicity, equality, integrity, and peace/nonviolence are ideals toward which we strive both in our lives and in the world.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to join us in silent worship and reflection.

We are currently suspending our in-person worship & other meetings, based upon precautions that have been recommended to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. 

We have scheduled Zoom meetings for Friends worship on Sundays, 10:00 AM official start time, closing at approx Noon. We have also scheduled Thursday night meetings, 6:00 pm official start time, closing at approx 7:00 pm. If you would like to take part in these meetings, please email us at [email protected] for the codes/links.
