These programmes are an integral part of Yearly Meeting. They enable children and young people to engage with Yearly Meeting in a variety of age appropriate ways, encouraging their spiritual and personal growth, as well as connecting them with the Quaker community.
All 0 to 18s attending Yearly Meeting need to be booked on to the appropriate aged programme by a parent or guardian.
