What happens at Meeting?

The Santa Barbara Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed Quaker Meeting without a minister. Friends sit mostly in silence, although anyone who is moved to speak may do so. There is also an opportunity to share your name, add any after thoughts and make announcements after the service. Each week we close the Meeting with light refreshments and there is time for informal fellowship.

Childcare is provided every week at our First Day School.
The Meeting House is accessible to those with disabilities.
Visitors are always welcome.

Our Meeting is affiliated with the Southern California Quarterly Meeting and Pacific Yearly Meeting. Ojai Friends Worship Group (link) meets every week under the care of the Santa Barbara Friends Meeting.
