An Introduction to the Extended Meeting for Worship
Friends Meetings occasionally hold a Meeting for Worship for longer than the usual one hour. This Extended Meeting for Worship allows many to go deeper in their centering and to give messages that enrich the worship.
At Friends Meeting at Cambridge Extended Meeting for Worship takes place on the fifth Sunday of the month for two hours starting at 9:30 am. During this time you can quietly leave, stretch and come back to the room mindful of the worshiping Friends.
Many Friends, attenders and visitors choose to come for only an hour of worship at regular time at 10:30 am. When you arrive during an Extended Meeting for Worship, please be mindful of the worship that is already in progress and refrain from conversation or other noise in the Meeting House. If you want to make an announcement at the rise of meeting, please write it on a card and quietly pass it to the person who has care of worship. Sending announcements in advance via email is strongly encouraged.
