Welcome to Being Friends Together!
Being Friends Together offers Quaker meetings a fresh way of approaching their ongoing development as living communities of faithful people.
It is packed with
- activities and ideas from previous Quaker learning projects
- some newly written and recorded material
- suggestions for useful websites, courses and actions that meetings can engage with
so we hope that there will be something here to suit every meeting’s interests and preferences! It also offers a simple discernment process to help meetings identify where they would like to focus their energy and attention first, supported by optional visits from experienced Friends or do-it-yourself guidance on the website.
Supporting You in Your Learning
Being Friends Together has been developed by Woodbrooke and Quaker Life to help Friends in meetings to:
- develop spiritually, both as individuals and meetings
- learn about aspects of the Quaker and Christian traditions
- develop and express their sense of Quaker identity
- grow as communities
- feel supported to live out Quaker testimony in their lives and localities
- integrate all generations into the life of meetings
