Visit-Another-Meeting-Sundays
- At recent CEQ events the need to build fellowship by worshipping with other Meetings has been a recurring topic of discussion. Elders and Pastoral Friends Support Group would like to suggest an informal intervisitation plan in response to this need. 5th Sundays in a month are extra Sundays – let’s use them! Let’s call them… Visit-Another-Meeting-Sundays. And on 5th Sundays in (the rest of) 2023 and 2024 encourage Friends and Meetings to go visiting.
