Yearly Meeting is when Quakers in Britain come together to worship, make decisions and spend time as a community.
Yearly Meetings are also occasions in which we can learn, practise, improve, and take back to our local meetings ways of conducting business which are rooted in Quaker tradition and our own experience yet also meet contemporary challenges.
The purposes and functions of Yearly Meeting are described in Quaker faith & practice 6.02–6.11, which also gives the background to the business agenda.

The next Yearly Meeting is being held as a residential gathering at Warwick University. Should you live nearby or wish to stay elsewhere, you are welcome to attend as a day visitor.
Information about the different types of accommodation and the booking process for day and residential places can be found on a dedicated area of the
Warwick University website (this opens in a new window).
Yearly Meeting Agenda Committee plans the agenda in consultation with standing committees, area meetings and General Meeting for Scotland, Meeting of Friends in Wales and Young Friends General Meeting and Meeting for Sufferings and its standing committees.
In two years out of three Yearly Meeting meets over a long weekend in May, at Friends House, in London. Once every three years Yearly Meeting is held as a week long residential Yearly Meeting Gathering, held outside London.
