About Yearly Meeting

At Yearly Meeting, Quakers from all over Britain come together. We worship, make decisions and spend time together.

We also learn, practice and improve ways of carrying out our work. We base these ways on our experiences and Quaker tradition. We take these methods back to our meetings to help us meet current challenges.

To find out what happens and why at Yearly Meeting, 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.
