What is Quaker Gospel Order?
Wednesday 22 May
19:00-20:30 (UK time)
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.

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.
