Who can attend

Everyone in our Quaker community is welcome. You don't have to be a member.

For those over 18 there is no charge to attend Yearly Meeting, but we ask you to register in advance so that we can send you all the information you need beforehand and help you with any particular access or other requirements you might have. It also helps Friends House to know how many people to expect, and prepare for this.

If you are an attender, ask someone from your worshipping community who knows you well to email the Yearly Meeting clerk at ym@quaker.org.uk to say that you would like to come and why. Ask them to help you prepare and understand what will happen at Yearly Meeting.

Yearly Meeting is an all-age event. Running alongside the main Yearly Meeting sessions there will be three age-related programmes. There is more information on the Children and young people's page.

Friends from other yearly meetings

Visiting Friends who are in membership but not of Britain Yearly Meeting, “may attend the sessions of the Yearly Meeting on producing a travelling minute or letter of introduction signed by the clerk of their own meeting or otherwise satisfying the clerk of their membership" ( Quaker faith & practice 6.14 (offsite link)). Please send these in advance to the Yearly Meeting Office, or deliver it to the Clerk's table after the first session.

If you are unable to attend in person

You can still participate. You can find more information and follow updates online at www.quaker.org.uk/ym, through Facebook at www.facebook.com/bymevent or Twitter
