At Yearly Meeting 2019 we will examine our privilege (and assumptions of privilege).

At Yearly Meeting, committees appointed to do work on behalf of Britain Yearly Meeting give accounts of how they have done this. Their reports can be found in Agenda and notes (available in March 2019) or in the Trustees' annual report and financial statements for 2018.
Yearly Meeting also appoints people to carry out work at Yearly Meeting and throughout the year. These nominations are on the nominations page.
Reading these reports and being aware of the nominations is part of spiritual preparation for Yearly Meeting.Back to Archive
