1 - 7 August 2020, University of Bath
Britain Yearly Meeting has postponed the 2020 Yearly Meeting Gathering. The ongoing public health situation with the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible to bring 2,000 people together for this event. Please see the press release for more information.

To find out what happens and why at Yearly Meeting Gathering, read Quaker faith & practice 6.02–6.11 (offsite link). These passages also give the background to the business agenda.
Yearly Meeting Agenda Committee plans the agenda with the help of standing committees, area meetings, General Meeting for Scotland, Meeting of Friends in Wales, Young Friends General Meeting, Meeting for Sufferings and its standing committees. In two years out of three, Yearly Meeting meets over a long weekend in May at Friends House in London. Once every three years it is held as a week-long residential Yearly Meeting Gathering, outside London.
