Welcome to Lancaster Friends Meeting!

We welcome all visitors, inquirers, and seekers to join us as we seek the Presence of the Divine in the expectant silence of our “meeting for worship.”  As Quakers, we seek to “walk cheerfully over all the world, answering that Welcome to Lancaster Friends Meeting!of God in everyone” (George Fox, 1656).

That of God, the Inward Light, Spirit, the Light of Christ, the Inward Teacher, the Divine: by whatever name we know this Truth, our belief and our experience is that it dwells in each and every one of us.

This is the basis of our spiritual community. Believing this, we aspire to be an open and inclusive community, affirming the diversity of our individual spiritual paths while seeking that unity which transcends our human differences.


Whether you are an occasional visitor or a regular attender here at Lancaster Friends Meeting, we want to welcome you to our community, and help you to get to know us better.  What to Expect »
