When Quakers got it wrong – and where do we go from here?

28th October 2020 - 2nd December 2020


Surveys indicate that British Quakers today are mainly white and middle-class. How has this happened given our testimony to equality? This course looks at some uncomfortable parts of British Quaker history, with a focus on race and class. Participants are invited to consider how this history still affects Quakers in Britain today. From reflections on the past we will move into an exploration of what Quakers in Britain might become if we could live out more fully our testimonies to equality and truth. The course will consist of six interactive weekly live sessions. There will also be “homework” with questions and readings to consider between sessions.

Live sessions are on Wednesday at 19:15-20:45.
