What is the Quarterly Meeting ?
The Religious Society of Friends is organized into Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly Meetings.

The basic unit is the Monthly Meeting, the equivalent to the local congregation in most other churches. It is customary for Friends to worship every Sunday. The times for worship vary from Meeting to Meeting. It is also the practice to hold business meetings once a month.

This is called Monthly Meeting for Worship and Business and takes place either before or after the regular hour of worship. Bucks Quarterly Meeting is composed of 14 unprogrammed Monthly Meetings in the Bucks County area (including one New Jersey Meeting). Bucks Quarter is a member of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. The word unprogrammed means that Friends gather in silent prayer and meditation to wait on the word of the Divine spirit. Members of a Monthly Meeting are also members of the Quarterly meeting which meets for worship and business every three months. Similarly, all members within a certain geographic region belong to a Yearly Meeting which meets for several days once a year.
