An Invitation to Young Friends Everywhere

Young Friends Across the Four FWCC sections invite young Quakers aged 16-35 to a series of workshops this autumn. Please share with any young Friends in your meetings.

“To all Young Friends everywhere,

We invite you to join Young Friends around the world, and across the Quaker branches, for a series of 5 online workshops over 10 weeks. Join us for one or all five.

These sessions will be run by young Quakers for young Quakers through Friends World Committee for Consultation on 5 Saturdays between August 29 and October 24, 2020.

In each session we will explore climate action, peace, and justice in relation to one of the five testimonies: Truth, Equality, Peace, Simplicity and Community. There will be a chance to hear from 2 – 3 speakers (who will be Young Friends from across the FWCC sections), to talk in zoom breakout rooms exploring the session’s theme, and a chance to gather and reflect on our discussions together.

We recognize that climate action, peace, and justice are core to Quakerism, and many young Friends are actively living out their faith in the world, so we all have so many stories to listen to, to learn from, and to tell. As young Quakers from around the world, we want to create a network of Young Friends that will provide a chance to share our stories and experiences and to hear from and inspire one another.”

So are you aged 16 – 35? Come, listen, and learn.
