Community is essential to Quaker practice. We believe that the Light of Christ is present in every heart. However, each individual only perceives some portion of the Truth. By listening together, we receive a more complete understanding of how God is at work among us.

When we gather for worship each week, we share the responsibility of listening for God's guidance. This is the community at work, and it is the central event of our life together.

To get the most from community, we must be authentic with one another. At West Hills Friends, we're committed to being a safe and welcoming place, so all who gather with us may be their true selves.

From week to week, we enjoy different music leaders. As leaders change, so does the style of music.


Someone reads a passage of Scripture and a prepared message.

Open Worship

As we listen together, the Spirit may direct one of us to sing, speak or pray aloud.

Joys & Concerns

Each week, we take time to share our lives with one another.

In 2008 (after more than a decade of discernment), our meeting extended an official welcome to gays and lesbians, inviting them to participate fully in our life together. Since that day, our understanding of what it means to be a welcoming community has grown deeper. We invite you to read about our process, and why this issue matters to us.
