A Quaker study, retreat, and conference center, Pendle Hill seeks to transform lives and foster peace with justice in the world.

“Since my time at Pendle Hill…, I have been propelled to seek the sacred whenever I photograph. More recently, as I have refined and slowed my process, I have come to more fully understand holding in the Light. I feel myself engaging my subjects for extended periods of time in a loving way. Pendle Hill led me to be a better photographer and a better Quaker.” – Workshop Friend

Each year thousands of people from many backgrounds visit Pendle Hill to experience our programs and services, including workshops and courses, personal retreats, conference services, lectures and presentations, and life-changing long-term study opportunities.  More still are reached through Pendle Hill publications, including our long-standing pamphlet series.

“Thank you… and the entire Pendle Hill staff for an amazing retreat week. From the courteous and prompt rescue… when I was lost walking between the Wallingford train station and PH, to your very warm and gracious welcome…, to the powerful worship service your team invited us to participate in…, I had a life-changing experience. Please pass along my thanks and know that I will be an advocate for PH in my circles.” – Retreat Friend
