Course Details

This event is being run by Woodbrooke working in partnership with Quakers in Britain.

Are you open to new light, from whatever source?

In the last few years, momentum has been building amongst British Quakers around issues of diversity, inclusion, power and privilege. This conference aims to build on this important work, preparing Friends to further consider these issues, both in their meetings and at 2020’s Yearly Meeting Gathering in Bath. The weekend will include key note speeches, workshops, opportunities for informal discussion and worship. We will explore various forms of diversity in an intersectional way. Prepare to be challenged and inspired. We welcome your courageous participation.

If you require a crèche in order to attend this event, please contact Edwina Peart.

For this event we will be trialling ‘Pay as Led’.  After booking you will be sent details of how to make payment where you can pay as much or as little as you feel led to pay.

It costs us £317 per participant to cover the costs of this particular event. Woodbrooke subsidises all of our learning and our usual residential pricing is £245 per participant. We encourage you, or your meeting, to pay this if you can. However our priority is to ensure that cost isn’t a barrier so only pay what you can. Our bursaries are still there to support those who need them and the amount people pay will be confidential.

Edwina Peart is the Inclusion and Diversity Coordinator for Britain Yearly Meeting.

Mark Russ is Woodbrooke’s Nurturing Friends and Meetings Tutor and has responsibility for the Equipping for Ministry programme. His interests include Christian theology and the Bible, music and worship, intentional community and apocalyptic spirituality.
