Meeting for Learning – June & July 2019

Meetings for Learning are held on the 3rd Sunday of the month, in the Meeting House upstairs library. They start at 10.00 prompt, and end at 10.45 so Friends can then go to Meeting for Worship.
Subjects vary but all relate in some way to being a Quaker in the 21st century. Everyone is welcome. Just turn up in time for a 10am start, prepared to be stimulated, challenged or informed – or all three!

 

16 June: Getting involved: young people talking about Quaker action beyond our Local Meeting

This Meeting for Learning is led by young people focussing on experiences of why and how young Friends become involved in wider Quaker action, and how such experiences as a young person influence life journeys.  All ages welcome. Do come and hear from young Friends and share your own experiences!

 

21 July: This year’s Swarthmore Lecture

Led by Lee Cottier, this is an opportunity to discuss this year’s Swarthmore Lecture given at Britain Yearly Meeting by Eden Grace, Global Ministries Director for Friends United Meeting. The subject is the spiritual basis for climate justice – a hot topical issue right now!
 
Suggestions for future topics are always welcome.
