Living Witness Gathering

All Change! Making paths on shifting ground.

26/08/2022 - 29/08/2022, All Day

at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, Selly Oak, Birmingham

Living Witness supports the development of spirit-led approaches to sustainable living among Quakers and in the wider society.

Prophet, healer, rebel, mystic, helper, builder…? Have you found a niche in the ecosystem of responses to the climate and ecological crisis? How can we support, challenge and care for each other on our different paths? What does our Quaker faith and practice bring?

Whether you are deeply and widely engaged, or feel stuck and unsure what to do next, you are welcome at our summer gathering. We will weave together short talks, response sessions and workshops, relaxation, worship and other spiritual practices. We hope to strengthen our sense of community and the connections among our diverse approaches, to open ourselves to transformation and discern some unity in a way forward together.

Gathering fee: £330 includes accommodation and meals from Friday evening to Monday lunch.

Non-residential: £180 includes meals and refreshments except breakfast, Friday to Monday. Some camping space is available nearby.

Weekend only: £260 includes accommodation and meals Friday to Sunday
