Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Santa Monica Friends Meeting

Welcome to Santa Monica Friends Meeting!

(To find out more about us and for links to the rest of the site, click the About button on the menu bar at top of page)

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.

Most of our meetings (meetings for worship, committee meetings, etc) are meeting via Zoom currently, to help slow the spread of COVID-19. 

We have scheduled weekly Zoom meetings for Friends worship on Sundays, 10:00 AM official start time, closing at approx Noon.

We have also scheduled weekly Zoom meetings for Friends worship on Thursday nights, 6:00 pm official start time, closing at approx 7:00 pm.

The 2nd & 4th Friday of every month, we also have our women's group via Zoom. Start time is 7:00 pm, closing at approx 8:00 pm. 

If you would like to take part in any of these meetings, please email us at [email protected] for the codes/links.

We have begun a hybrid/in-person meeting for our Sunday morning meetings for worship. For that, we are currently requiring all in-person attenders to wear masks & show proof of full vaccination. If you are interested in this option, please email us at [email protected]
