Quaker Week is Coming

Quaker Week is 30th September to 8th October 2017.

It’s a week to focus on all the things we do that enable people to discover more about Quakers and the Quaker way.  If you’re new to Quakers it’s a great opportunity to find out more.  The week kicks-off with a Quaker Quest at Bull St Meeting House in central Birmingham on 30th September, where you can meet Quakers, experience meeting for worship and ask questions.  There will be events happening across Central England so look through the list and find the one for you:

  • 30/09/2017 Quaker Quest, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm at Bull Street Quaker Meeting House

The theme for 2017 is ‘In turbulent times: be a Quaker’, highlighting both the importance to Quakers of living out our faith in the world, and the strength that comes from being a community.  The main aim of Quaker Week is to ensure Quakers are well known and widely understood – to help seekers to find us and hopefully encourage newcomers to experience Quaker worship. However, many meetings who take part in outreach also find that the experience strengthens and enriches their own Quaker community as a loving, inclusive and all-age fellowship through shared activity.

If you are part of a Quaker Meeting in Central England that is organising an event for Quaker week, please let us know so we can advertise it: contact website@centralenglandquakers.org.uk

There are outreach materials available such as display boards, sail banners and a gazebo, which can be collected from Bull St meeting house.  There will also be posters, leaflets and guidance from Friends Houseread this message from Quaker Life for more details.
