In 2017, Quakers in Britain began a sustained conversation about diversity and inclusion in our Quaker community. This workshop aims to support meetings who are beginning to have this important and challenging discussion.

Becoming a truly inclusive community is a life-time's work. Unpicking the knots of all the ways we exclude others, including racism, ableism, sexism, transphobia, ageism and homophobia, is a long, difficult and messy job.

A day exploring the building blocks of being a faithful community within the Quaker tradition. How can we be a gathered people, and a community of transformation? Using a variety of activities, we will reflect together on being a vibrant, Spirit-led community.

How do we encourage quality and depth in Quaker worship and spoken ministry? Everyone in a Quaker community, and especially those with eldership responsibility, should consider this issue sometimes.

This course gives a concise overview of Quaker history from the 1640s to the present-day, looking at seven distinct theological emphases.

This course, designed particularly for those new to the Quaker way, will introduce the basic and essential elements of Quakerism.

An online course for meetings consisting of three two hour modules: Early Christian experience, Jesus, and The Beginnings of the Church - survival and structure.

This session offers the enticing prospect of spending a discomforting couple of hours as Jesus presses the question of what you do with what you have.

This standalone online session for meetings includes the tutor's recording and commentary on the parable, followed by material and questions for a guided small group discussion finishing with a live webinar.

In this study programme, we will explore the spiritual roots of Quaker practices and concerns. When we understand the founding vision of early Friends, we can trace how the Quaker way has changed over time and consider our own experiences as Quakers today.

What is Quaker spirituality all about and how does it speak to us today? What is distinctive about Quaker faith and its practices? In our day together we will explore central elements of Quaker spirituality.

The Loving Earth Project aims to help people to engage with issues around climate change without being overwhelmed. It uses a creative approach to learning and reflecting on specific issues and helping us take action to care for what we love and to be good ancestors.

Can hope be more powerful than simple optimism? What does it mean to ‘practise hope’? How do we maintain hope when things seem to be getting worse rather than better? In this workshop we’ll explore different perspectives on hope and think about how they speak to us as Quakers.
