Recent Intervisitation Reports

Our General Secretary has invited all Friends in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting to visit two meetings each year as a way to know one another better and experience the breadth and diversity of our faith community. We also invite you to share a snapshot report of your experience after each visit. We will post Friends’ stories and pictures on our website as a record of the travel amongst ourselves.

There's new life at Darby Meeting! After being shuttered for many years, Darby now meets on first- First days. I was delighted to be among nine Friends on this occasion, in deeply gathered worship. At the rise of Meeting there was a brief, informal business meeting that reviewed plans for an upcoming event with Bartram's Garden (John Bartram is buried there). After Meeting, we all went out to lunch together, enjoyed some robust fellowship. Two new, energetic members and a collegial atmosphere give this Meeting a great future!

I appreciated the deep silence of worship, and how welcoming the Meeting was. It was wonderful to reconnect with Hollister and to meet new Friends.
