This conference will seek to meet the needs of Friends involved in interchurch and interfaith activities within their community. During the weekend, we will find inspiration, share experiences, and encourage one another in undertaking this important work.
The programme will offer a range of different activities. There will be whole group sessions focused on particular themes, small group opportunities to share personal experiences, optional workshops providing guidance and support, and times for worship and reflection. Equal weight will be given to exploring our work within both an ecumenical and an interfaith context.
There will be three guest speakers. Maureen Sier, the Director of Interfaith Scotland, will talk about what she has learned from her interfaith work. Elaine Green, Clerk of the Quaker Committee for Christian and Interfaith Relations (QCCIR), will reflect on her experiences working within an interchurch context. Rachel Muers, Quaker member of the World Council of Churches Faith and Order Commission, will reflect on how Quakers might engage with the upcoming world conference on the impact of the Nicene Creed.
The Conference will be held at High Leigh and online. Residential bookings include accommodation and all meals, starting with the evening meal on Friday and finishing with lunch on Sunday.
