QPSW Conferences and Events
QPSW Spring Conference 5-7 April 2013
The QPSW Spring Conference is a spiritually based event which provides an opportunity to meet with Friends from across the Yearly Meeting and learn about the work of QPSW.
The conference will focus on the work that QPSW does in the world on your behalf. You will learn how the work we do connects with Quakers and others in the world and how it grows from Testimony. You will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of those who deliver the programmes of work. You will learn how work is discerned and overseen by Friends.
You will also have the opportunity to learn about two programmes in depth via attendance at workshops and there will be ample opportunity to reflect on what you have heard and to get to know other Friends in small facilitated groups.
The Conference is particularly aimed at:
- QPSW Correspondents
- Nearly new Friends/Attenders
- Those new to the work of QPSW
We hope the following work programmes will be amongst those featured:-
- Crime, Community and Justice
- Eccumenical Accompaniment in Palestine/Israel
- Peace Education and Mediation
- Parliamentary Liaison / Advocacy
- Turning the Tide
- QUNO Geneva
- One Year UK Placements
Other staff will also be present and will participate in a more informal session that will allow you to get to know more about our work.
