YFGM Gathering in York

21 - 23 February 2020, York

Young Friends General Meeting (YFGM) is the national organisation for young adult Quakers in Britain (aged 18–30ish). Young Friends will meet together to worship, share meals, socialise and share common interests. The weekend will also include a workshop session from Turning the Tide on activism and healing. Our guest speaker will be Edwina Peart, Inclusion and diversity coordinator at Britain Yearly Meeting.

These weekends are open to anyone aged between 18 and 30ish who is a Quaker, or interested in Quakerism, and are a chance to meet like-minded people and find out more about, and influence, what Young Adult Friends do. If you attend a local meeting for worship but want to connect with others your own age, it's a great place to start.

YFGM is FREE to attend, however we ask for a suggested donation of £15 or more, if you are able, to cover food and running costs. It costs YFGM approximately £75 per person to run the weekend.

Travel bursaries are available for newcomers, please email yfgm@quaker.org.uk for more information.
