About – This is a weekend for members, attenders and our families in Redland meeting where we will be exploring the theme of  ‘Vision 20/20’

We have booked the Ammerdown Centre near Radstock again, so that up to 70 of us can spend a weekend together, involved in a range of all-age activities, sharing meals and having time to relax and get to know each other better at a deeper level. We have chosen the theme of ‘Vision 20/20’, in which we can explore the Quaker vision for our complex world and how we, as Quakers, respond to its challenges. Once again, we plan to offer opportunities for both inward reflection and outward action while we also explore the meaning of friendship within and beyond our religious community.

We are developing a varied and exciting timetable, with lots of choice, drawing on the many talents and strengths in our Meeting. We will also have plenty of time for old favourites: mindful walking, singing, meeting for worship, walks, campfire and cocoa, and of course the quiz! We plan to have an open mic session around the fire wok so perhaps you have a musical instrument you would like to play, a song to share, a rap, a dance to teach us: we look forward to hearing from you!

If you have never been away with us and are curious please ask around, most needs can be met, and most concerns answered. Ammerdown is warm and comfortable, well organised and spacious – perfect for our needs. The booking form is available on our website or at the Meeting House. The closing date for booking is February 29th, 2020.
