Worship, Ministry and Afterword

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. Some things are simple, like encouraging people to arrive with hearts and minds prepared. Other things involve bigger changes: in my research on ‘afterwords’ in 2016, I found that lots of Quaker meetings had experimented with afterwords, joys and concerns, and other ways of making their worship time more fruitful and inclusive. In this workshop, we’ll look at the process of attending meeting for worship: arriving, centring down, prayer, ministry, afterwords or other options, notices, social time, and leaving.
