12th September 2022 – Jan and Teresa will be attending Yearly Meeting in May 2022. The theme this year is ‘faith, community and action. Jan and Teresa will feedback on three big questions. How do we experience worship, community and witness? How can we build Quaker communities that respond to challenges and put faith into action? How can we transform thinking and action in Quaker communities and wider society?

We have planned just 6 meetings after which we can evaluate how successful the change of meeting in the day has been. Also whether to stay with meeting once a month. We kindly received 13 offers of topics at our planning meeting so we have plenty to go on!
