    Being a Quaker parent

    An opportunity for Quakers who are parents to come together and explore our values as Quakers and the highs and lows of parenting. It takes time to think about how Quaker parents are or might be supported and nourished within their homes, meetings and in the wider world. Sessions include sharing, listening, reflection and input.

    The course takes place at Woodbrooke every 3 years and runs with a parallel programme for young people.

    Meet informally at lunchtime with other Quaker parents to share and learn or just have a chat about things that you find important in your experience as a Quaker parent.

    Find out when and where it will take place in the Yearly Meeting events listing.
