Living at the Sustainability Centre with young Quakers

In late October, five young Friends from the south-west travelled from Bristol to Hampshire to spend a long weekend exploring their beliefs and values and living together with other young Quakers in community.

We had a brilliant weekend interrogating our beliefs and how we explain them, sharing food, worship and playing games. The weekend was made by the beautiful surroundings of the Sustainability Centre and all the fun, interesting activities they offered us. Everyone left a little wiser and a lot wearier on Monday afternoon.

Lots of people asked; ‘when is the next national event for Young Quakers?’ We are happy to say there’s another one next spring. 2020 Vision: 6-8 March 2020 is a national Quaker event in Herefordshire for young people aged 13-17. More info on the BYM events page soon: https://www.quaker.org.uk/news-and-events  

Young people were encouraged to go by the local Youth Project which continues to meet regularly in meeting houses across Bristol. For more info, please contact kirstyp@quaker.org.uk
