What exactly do we mean by ‘gospel order’? Join us for this live online session where we will introduce the concept and explore what it means for how we as Quakers organise our community and make spirit-led decisions.

In this context ‘Gospel’ refers to the actual relationship with God. ‘Order’ refers to the patterns of living as which flow from that. As a phrase it describes the structures, practices and principles of spirit-led discernment and mutual accountability within our community.

We will explore what this means for us as Friends today and what importance it carries for our structures and processes in the twenty-first century.
