The Quaker Life Youth, Children, and Families staff team organise events for young Quakers of all ages and offer support to those who are running Quaker events across Britain Yearly Meeting.

There are also network, all-age worshiping communities and regionally based events, which help connect Quaker communities and share good practice.

    Our events

    Our events aim to bring together children and young people from across Britain Yearly Meeting and to offer opportunities to support their spiritual growth, personal development and understanding of Quaker faith and practice. Participants explore themes in age appropriate creative, fun ways, including through games, stories, discussions, role play, worship, craft-and much more. We hope to encourage children and young people to explore their faith and spiritual lives within their Quaker community.

    Past events

    Each year, after Yearly Meeting events, each of the programmes shares a minute or Epistle with the whole Yearly Meeting. These outline what activities children and young people did and some of the feeling, ideas and questions which emerged.

    To find minutes and Epistles from past events go to the Yearly Meeting pages or see here for specific events:
