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 and Wednesdays year-round.
It’s online. To receive the link for Online Meetings, contact the Meeting secretary.

In the interest of public safety, Swarthmore Friends Meeting will be sharing Meeting for Worship using Zoom. If you would like to have the Zoom link for meeting for worship Sunday morning at 10 am Eastern, or Wednesday morning at 10 am Eastern, contact the Meeting secretary at the address or telephone number below. Meeting for Worship is now being held in person and on Zoom. We are mask-optional but encourage Friends to put on masks when approaching or speaking with those children and adults who have decided to wear masks to Meeting, including during our time of greeting and conversation. We also ask that all eligible and able be vaccinated.

Religious Education:¬†Children at 10:00 am each Sunday, September through May.

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.
