Oxford Friends Meeting

Stephen Angell, ESR's Geraldine Leatherock Professor of Quaker Studies, brings us this introduction to Oxford Friends Meeting:

Oxford Friends Meeting, located in Oxford, Ohio, is one of the newer meetings in Ohio Valley Yearly Meeting, formally inaugurated as a monthly meeting in 1990. We hold worship at the interdenominational Campus Ministry Center on First Day mornings at 10 AM; the CMC is located at 16 South Campus Street, across from Miami University in the Oxford "uptown". 

Oxford Meeting holds Friends’ worship in the unprogrammed tradition. It is probably one of the smaller meetings in the area, with an average attendance on First Day mornings between 8 and 15 persons, including 4 children (and we do have an active First Day School program for them). If you are looking for an intimate meeting experience, with lively worship and Second Hour discussions, Oxford Meeting may be the worship home for you! 

From the Richmond area, Sandra Ward-Angell, Steve Angell, and Paul Kriese often drive the 30 miles or so down to meeting, so feel free to contact one of us for a ride.
