An event bringing together elders, overseers and others to explore how meetings might engage imaginatively with families and encourage them on their spiritual journeys.

Each day will include short presentations with opportunities to take part in open and creative conversations in small groups.

We don't aim to provide simple answers or identify the 'next new thing' to do. Together we will think deeply about how our Quaker meetings might reach out to, connect with and be enriched by families.

The day is free, including refreshments and lunch, providing the chance for people to eat and relax together.

Don't come expecting to:

  • be told what to do
  • be given easy answers
  • just sit passively
  • have your preconceptions confirmed
  • find everyone agreeing with you.

  • Do expect to:

  • be challenged
  • get fresh perspectives
  • join in
  • hear the unexpected
  • talk about the kind of meeting where….

  • Advanced booking essential: book by 30 October.
