We welcome single people, couples, and families.

What Is All "The Buzz" At Birmingham Friends?

Birmingham Friends Youth and Peace and Social Concerns Committees have teamed up to help our small corner of the world address climate change through beekeeping. Learn about the initiative that led to the Birmingham Friends Bee Yard in this video. Please see our Children and Youth Programs page to learn about the Youth and P&SC Committees' work to provide land mine detectors to nations and people who need them.

Join Us!

LIVING with our neighbors. GROWING into BELOVED Community

Wednesday, July 26 - Sunday, July 30

Online & at The College of New Jersey

Annual Sessions is one of the oldest Quaker traditions! Today, all over the world, yearly meetings gather once a year to bring together members and attenders from their local meetings. We call them “Sessions” because meeting for worship with attention to the business of the Yearly Meeting is central to these times together. During Sessions we ask: What is God’s big idea for PYM Friends?

Attend Online or Onsite

Online: Wednesday and Thursday of Annual Sessions are online only with Zoom. 

Onsite: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are available at The College of New Jersey. We are joyfully returning to The College of New Jersey, just outside of Trenton. Stay on campus in the dorms, or come as a commuter.


Friday to Sunday at The College of New Jersey. Bring the whole family! Programs for young people entering K-12 in Fall 2023, and child care for the littlest Friends, are available onsite.

For Birmingham Friends Meeting to continue to operate as a spiritual home, a place of worship, a caring community, and a source of inspiration to live with love, compassion, and justice toward others, it depends on the ongoing financial support of its members, attenders, and well-wishers.
