Senior Conference information leaflet

Senior Conference is a spiritual gathering and a Quaker conference run by and for young people aged 15 to 18, a place of friendship, laughter, and reflection, which builds a strong and supportive community over the course of the week, and friendships which last for a lifetime.

During the week we explore the theme with speakers and in small group discussions and activities. Senior Conference also offers a variety of workshops, daily worship, an outing, social events and ample spare time for rest, chat and making new friends.

At the end of the week an “epistle" from everyone at Senior Conference is drafted. The epistle is an informal report that aims to capture the spirit of the week and to describe what happened. You can see previous epistles here.

Senior Conference is organised and run by the arrangements committee, a group of ten young people appointed by last year's Conference. They are supported in the planning and organisation by a team of adult volunteers.
