What are we?

Quakers in Yorkshire (QiY) is an umbrella body for most of the Quaker Meetings in Yorkshire.

Our aims

  •  reaching out to help those who are looking for what Quakerism can offer
  •  helping those who have found Quakerism to deepen their faith

What do we do?

To share our knowledge of Quakerism with enquirers of all ages we organise:

Junior Holidays & Gatherings and Holiday School provide an opportunity for Quaker Children and young people and their friends, from different age-groups, to have time together.  Through worship, discussion and play they learn more fully what it is to be part of the Quaker Community and its values.

Series of Quaker Quest are held in several locations each year.  These provide an opportunity for those interested in, or new  to Quakerism to find out more in a relaxed situation and to ask and discuss questions. Quaker Outreach in Yorkshire can also give advice and support to local Meetings wishing to organise their own outreach events and lend out our Quaker Exhibition.

At Easter we run an event near Scarborough, called Easter Settlement, which enables a wide range of Friends to get together for fellowship, worship and fun.  This gathering appeals to those old and young, families and single people, newcomers and longstanding members.

In the autumn a weekend conference is held at Glenthorne Quaker Guest House in Grasmere.
