Helen Chambers is an elder with oversight and trainer with Quaker Life children and young people’s team.
All-Age Community Beyond Lockdown
The pandemic has been a time of change, loss, challenge and new opportunities. Quaker communities have lived adventurously and found new ways of doing things. As we look towards a time beyond lockdown, what discoveries do we want to hold on to? What don’t we want to forget?
In this short course we will share what we’ve learned about building all age community online and in other ways. We will draw on the experiences of Friends of all ages in an atmosphere of fun, play and reflective conversation. Through sharing experiences and stories and creative activities, we will gain deep insights into how our Quaker communities can emerge from lockdown strengthened and open to life-giving change.
This course is open to all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Families only need to book one place.
Live sessions are on Friday 5 March at 19:00-21:00 and on Saturday 6 March at 10.00-12:00 and 16:00-18:00.
