Area Meeting May 2019

18/05/2019, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

at Sutton Coldfield Quaker Meeting House, Sutton Coldfield

Before Area Business Meeting, there is a reflection and worship session from 11:45-12:30 based on a collage of short presentations about Climate Changing People’s Lives – Young Peoples’ Perspectives.

Lunch will then be served before Area Meeting begins at 2pm.

Our Area Business Meeting is a special type of Meeting for Worship used to make decisions: from how Quakers spend our money, to adopting a Concern.

Any Member can attend these meetings and take part in decision making: if you are an attender and would like to attend, please ask an Elder or Overseer at your local meeting.  The meeting will be chaired by a Clerk, who will introduce items of business to be discussed, and allow questions to be asked.  Members of the meeting sit silently in worship, reflecting on the matter in hand and try to Discern the way forward.
