Course Details

This online course, for new or prospective clerks with little or no experience of Quaker clerking, is based on the on-site course with the same name. The five modules cover the clerk’s role before, during and after a Meeting for Worship for Business. We also consider why we use our particular business style in our meetings. We will focus on clerking local meetings, but clerks of other meetings, including area meetings, will also find they can learn much about their role. This course involves a time commitment of approximately two to three hours per week.

Chris Skidmore is a former clerk of Yearly Meeting who has been part of the ‘Being a Quaker Clerk’ team since 2017, teaching both at Woodbrooke and on-line.

Peter Eccles is a former Yearly Meeting Clerk, Swarthmore Lecturer and an emeritus professor of mathematics.

Sue Glover Frykman joined Friends in 1976, lives and works in Sweden, and is an experienced clerk.
