Quaker funerals: community and contribution
6 April 2018 by Paul Parker
The responsibility for running local and area Quaker meetings is held by their members. These pages offer information about the roles, and advice and support to the role-holders.
All members are part of the clergy and have the clergy's responsibility for the maintenance of the meeting as a community.- Quaker faith & practice 11.01
The Quaker faith can sometimes appear to outsiders as a do it yourself religion. There are no paid ministers or clergy in Quaker meetings. The work of the meetings is carried out by attenders and members. This is done on a voluntary basis in most cases and is considered by Friends as ministry in the form of service.
