At Yearly Meeting 2019 we will examine our privilege (and assumptions of privilege). Privilege - whether we recognise it or not - fundamentally impacts our ability to act on our urgent Quaker concerns regarding climate justice and sustainability, and inclusion and diversity. Whether coming in person or upholding Yearly Meeting from elsewhere, please help the discernment by reading the preparation guidance in:

Sustainability and climate change


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.
