At Yearly Meeting Quakers from all over Britain come together. We worship, make decisions and spend time together.
We also learn, practice and improve ways of carrying out our work. We base these ways on our experiences and Quaker tradition. We take these methods back to our meetings to help us meet current challenges.
To find out what happens and why at Yearly Meeting, read Quaker faith & practice 6.02–6.11 (offsite link). These passages also give the background to the business agenda.
Yearly Meeting 2020
At Yearly Meeting in November 2020, we will be holding two online sessions to take required business and share in worship. We hope that the sessions will take place in the afternoon of 15 November 2020, from 2pm.
Quakers come together in stillness to listen to stories of experience, recognising and responding to the promptings of the Spirit and wisely using gifts to work with others to tackle the causes of injustice and inequality. However, this time the emphasis will be on worship and receiving reports and managing required business.
Yearly Meeting Gathering 2021
At a Yearly Meeting Gathering we aim to organise an inspiring and accessible event which provides the context for Yearly Meeting in session. We seek to create a diverse and varied community and provide a wide range of opportunities for learning and engaging with the Yearly Meeting theme.
