All Are Welcome!

Swarthmore Friends Meeting is a diverse and welcoming religious community centered around worship, fellowship, and action on social concerns. As Quakers, we believe that each person experiences God directly, without outside assistance, and we seek this direct communion with God in our silent worship. Our social witnesses spring from our calling to nurture that of God in every person.

Our meetinghouse is located on the Swarthmore College campus. We invite all to join us in worship and other activities, and to explore whether Swarthmore Meeting would be a good spiritual home for you.

Quakerism: Profound, simple, and not mysterious! Quakers talk about their faith in short videos.

Worship times: 10:00 am Sundays year-round. 

Religious Education: Children at 10:00 am each Sunday, September through May. Adults at 11:45 am on the first Sunday of each month, September through June. 

For more information, contact the Meeting secretary: 610-328-8699 or

Swarthmore Friends Meeting welcomes all who come as spiritual seekers to share in worship and participate in the activities of our life together.  We celebrate diversity in its many forms, and strive to grow and sustain a loving fellowship where all feel welcome.
