Quaker Voices is published bimonthly by Quaker Life to provide spiritual nurture for individuals and meetings.

Thank you for the support you have given Quaker Voices, however, from January 2018, we are ceasing production of the journal.

We have been aware that for some years subscriptions have been falling steadily and, after a period of reflection and review we feel that the resource and staff time could be better used in developing more effective ways of engaging Friends and meetings in spiritual nourishment and learning. This remains a core part of our work in Quaker Life. We shared our thinking with Quaker Life Central Committee, who support this decision.

Thank you again for your support of Quaker Voices and of our work.
