Pendle Hill is a Quaker study, retreat, and conference center welcoming all for Spirit-led learning and community.

Located on 24 tranquil acres in the heart of a Quaker community in Wallingford, Pennsylvania, Pendle Hill offers a relaxing “world apart” yet is within easy reach by car, plane, bus, or train. Our vision – “to create peace with justice in the world by transforming lives” – is moved forward in daily worship, lectures and presentations, weekend workshops and retreats, short courses, and remarkable conversations.

Discover what we have to offer. We look forward to welcoming you soon.


From: Traci Hjelt Sullivan, Interim Executive Director

Almost a decade ago, I left Pendle Hill after four years as a resident staff spouse. What a delight it is to return as Interim Executive Director! Outgoing Executive Director Jen Karsten and I overlapped for a few days, and I so appreciate her generously sharing her time and insights. I invite you to read Jen’s departing message expressing gratitude for her years here and celebrating the milestones accomplished by Pendle Hill staff, board, and donors during the past nine years…
