Becoming Friends: Living and Learning with Quakers was an innovative learning project from Woodbrooke and Quaker Life which aimed to nurture and support those new to Friends. It provided a flexible, interactive course & a range of ways for Quaker meetings to support newcomers as they learned. Becoming Friends helped newcomers develop an understanding of Quakerism, while exploring their own journey and connection with Friends – whether or not considering applying for membership.
The Becoming Friends course offered newcomers:
- Flexible learning materials, accessible online or on paper.
- Options for working alone & with others, using a variety of approaches.
- A choice of learning units & activities to suit a wide range of interests & learning styles.
- The chance to work at their own pace & for a length of time that suits their interests & availability.
