Start the new year with positive intentions and fresh inspirations leading us to once more feel the gifts and gains that can come through service in our Quaker meetings.

Join this lively, informal and interactive session for an invigorating discussion on the meaning of service in a Quaker context, including how it relates to our testimonies, builds communities and deepens our individual and collective spiritual life.

This session may be of interest to you if you are:

  • New to Quakers and wondering about giving service
  • Recently nominated to a role and feeling apprehensive
  • Feeling in need of a reboot in your current role
  • Seeking some spiritual refreshment to boost your resilience in a role

Marilyn Higgins and Lynden Easterbrook have between them held a variety of Quaker roles. They will share engaging personal experiences and examples of how they have each found joy in their Quaker service, and look forward to hearing stories and reflections from Friends joining this session.
