Friends Meeting at Cambridge is a “Monthly Meeting” so called because we meet in worship monthly at 5 Longfellow Park to consider the business of the Meeting. We have about 300 (check this) resident and non-resident members and around 200 (check this) attenders, those who come often but have not requested membership. On any Sunday we may have from 5 to 20 visitors from other meetings and newcomers. Our average attendance at Sunday morning meeting for worship is about 150. The average attendance at First Day School is 20 children.
