This session will explore the role of community, and particularly faith communities, in helping us to resist burnout, manage disagreement, and make decisions about action and witness.


Together, let’s explore what love can do when it’s rooted in the Quaker community.

This project will explore change-making and Quaker faith through a series of intergenerational conversations. It will be an opportunity for Friends to get to know Quakers of different ages living in other parts of the world.
In each of this series of sessions, we will hear from those who’ve spent much of their lives devoted to Quaker witness and from those who are envisioning what the future of work for peace, justice, and climate action might look like.
Friends will share the resources they find in their Quaker faith for sustaining a life of social action.

There will a live session on a different topic every fortnight (bookable separately) and booking for one session will give you access to the course on Moodle (Woodbrooke’s online learning site) where recordings of every session will be made available. You can choose to attend any single session, several or all of the sessions.
