Course Details

A one-day seminar on recent research about Quaker decision-making. You can choose to offer a short presentation (email rhiannon.grant@woodbrooke.org.uk if interested). We will hear from academic researchers and from reflective practitioners of Quaker decision-making. Topics may include Quaker business method and non-Quaker organisations, theories of leadership, theology, the role of silence. We will also consider how this material might feed into the revision of the book of discipline. This is not a “how to” – we assume familiarity with Quaker decision-making.

The fee for this day includes lunch and refreshments. Accommodation, if required, should be booked separately.


Rachel Muers, a lifelong Quaker, lectures in Theology a Leeds University. Her books include "Testimony: Quakerism and theological ethics".

Nicholas Burton* is a member of Pickering and Hull AM and lectures in Corporate Responsibility at Northumbria University
