City Area Friends meet for worship at 10am every Sunday (same time all year).
Our meetinghouse is in Galloway Township, New Jersey,
near Absecon (click here for directions).
At 10am, we settle into a living, expectant silence. Many of us have come
to Friends as adults and we welcome first-time seekers to come visit and
share what we've found!
Children are very welcome and our building is wheelchair-accessible.
