What do we do?
To share our knowledge of Quakerism with enquirers of all ages we
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
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.
