Strawberry Creek Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends
Re: Looking for a Quaker Philadelphia Yearly group
I have been a regular attender at Strawberry Creek Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (we are part of the Pacific Yearly Meeting) for many years. Strawberry Creek is an unprogrammed meeting, which means that there is no pastor and no programmed service.
It is a wonderful, vibrant community of caring, socially active individuals. It is as racially and socioeconomically diverse a meeting as I have ever attended, and is equally welcoming to straight and LGBT individuals and families. I consider Strawberry Creek to be my extended family.
We meet Sundays at 10am at the Berkeley Technology Academy at 2701 Martin Luther King Jr. Way (cross street is Ward), which is walking distance from the Ashby BART Station. The building is completely accessible to wheelchairs.
Every Sunday, child care for infants and toddlers, and First Day (Sunday) School for elementary, middle, and high schoolers is offered.
Please come visit us! Feel free to e-mail me with any further questions. Philippa
