Worshipping with Friends

Worship is a time to turn away from worldly matters.  Silent worship enhances the daily practice of prayer, meditation and study.

“Be still and know that I am God”.

Granville Friends Meeting welcomes everyone to our Meeting for Worship.  We gather in worshipful silence, intending to open ourselves fully to the Divine Spirit, which we believe is within and beyond each person.  Our worship has no human leader and no planned program.

During worship, sometimes no words are spoken.  Sometimes, a person is led to minister vocally.  Each person present contributes to the depth of worship we reach as a group.  The meeting is ended, usually after about an hour, by shaking of hands initiated by persons appointed to do so.  All are invited to share joys, sorrows, and thoughts that arose during Meeting for Worship but were not expressed at that time.
