Equipping for Ministry

Woodbrooke’s Equipping for Ministry (EfM) programme is designed to give you a solid grounding in thinking about what it is to be a Quaker in the world today, and how you are personally called to live out that ministry. The course is designed to benefit both you and your Quaker community. As part of a religious group without a separated priesthood, it is important that we are all properly prepared to play our part in the life of our Quaker communities and as Friends in the wider world.


EfM was paused during the pandemic. We are currently developing a new version of EfM to start in the autumn of 2023. We are therefore not accepting EfM applications at this time.
