Welcome to Sadsbury Friends Meeting!

We are an historic peace church who practice the Quaker faith. Silent gatherings for worship are open to all comers. Those present are invited to worship and to follow the leadings of the Spirit. When truly moved, anyone may minister.

Meeting for Worship is a time when Friends (with a capital "F") come together for reflection, thanksgiving, praise of God, prayer and/or search for direction. It may be silent, expectant waiting, or it may include the sharing of one's message.

Each experience of worship is different. There is no right way to prepare for spiritual communion, no set practice to follow. One may find thoughtful reflection and prayer helpful in stilling the mind and body and opening one's self to the Spirit. Direct communication with God may come as a leading or fresh insights not necessarily meant to be shared.

At other times, vocal ministry may come in the form of prayer, praise of God, song, teaching, or witnessing. Fellow worshipers are called upon to listen with openness. However, a completely silent Meeting for Worship can be profoundly nurturing.

Worship is ended with the shaking of hands.

Fourth Annual Contemplative Christmas Eve Service

Sadsbury Meeting House

Monday, December 24, 4 – 5 pm.

All are welcome.

Come away from the hustle and bustle and join us for a contemplative hour of music, silence and poetry by the fireplace at Sadsbury Friends Meeting House, one of the oldest houses of worship in Lancaster County. Demonstrate the passion, hope and light of Christmas through the lighting of candles with others who share your desire for something deeper, quieter and more meaningful than what our consumer culture offers us at this time of the year. Music will be provided by Brenda Sauder and her daughter, Faith, accompanied by Louise Ranck on the piano. To honor safety standards, doors will close when all seats are taken. This special Christmas Eve Service is from 4-5 pm at 1089 Simmontown Road (1/2 mile east of Rt. 41), Gap, PA. All are invited to stay afterwards for refreshments downstairs. If you have questions, please contact Sadsbury Friends Meeting at info@sadsburyfriendsmeeting.org or call 484-985-0454.
