Held under the care of the Palo Alto Friends Meeting, the San Mateo Worship Group holds meeting for worship following the Quaker unprogrammed tradition. We gather in silence, waiting expectantly for the leading of the Spirit, creating a space within and among ourselves for reflection and revelation.

We welcome all who are interested in joining us for worship, whether you have been a member for years or it is your first time; whether you are a senior or a toddler. If you are curious to find out what Quakers are all about, we invite you to attend our Meeting for Worship, and you might find these short videos to be a helpful introduction.


The San Mateo Worship Group meets every first and third Sunday at 10:00 AM at the Gardeners’ Association Hall of the San Mateo Japanese-American Community Center, at 503 East 5th Avenue, San Mateo, CA.

Light refreshments will be available after each meeting for worship. We welcome all seekers, including those new to Quaker worship, to join us.
