Extended Worship

Extended worship is an opportunity to be seeped in the Divine in the company of other Friends. For many years, Friends in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting have been meeting on Saturdays for a full morning of unprogrammed worship, followed by fellowship over a bag lunch.   In the afternoon we share how we were touched by the Spirit in the morning worship, and center again in gathered silence together.

For many this is a regular practice that helps us hear how God is leading us, a mini-retreat in the midst of busy lives. Most newcomers to Extended Worship are surprised at how quickly time passes, and by about how learefreshed they feel.

All are welcome. Attend just a portion of the day or the full day. And remember to bring your lunch.  There is no cost to attend. No advance registration is required, except if you require child care.

If you would like child care, please contact us at least two weeks in advance by leaving a reply below.
