Being ready for children and families

29 July 2018, Wymondham

This workshop is for those in Quaker meetings that do not currently have engagement with children and wish to consider what they can do to be ready for children coming to meeting.

The cost of the workshop is £5 per person payable on the day. A light lunch will be provided and refreshments.

The aims of the workshop are:

  • To encourage participants to think about and share why they want children to come to meeting and what they want to achieve with their engagement with children
  • To enable participants to think about what their meeting needs to do to be ready to welcome children
  • To equip participants with what they need to know to be ready to welcome children
  • To help participants to identify what steps they need to take in order to encourage children to come to meeting and to be ready when this happens

By the end of the workshop participants will have:

  • Articulated what it is that would make their children's meeting distinctly Quaker
  • Identified actions that their meeting needs to take in order to be ready for children
  • Devised a session that can be ready for when children arrive at meeting and have thought about the physical space that this would happen in
  • Created an action plan to progress their meeting's readiness for children

The day begins after Meeting for Worship at 12:00 and ends at 17:00. Friends are warmly welcome! Note that places are limited and no places are available on the day without prior booking.
