Have you booked your place at the Yearly Meeting Gathering?
The Gathering will be held at the University of Bath from 1 – 7 August.  We hope to build a Gathering full of worship, fun, conversation, sharing, hope, games, learning, community and above all challenge.
Brochures are in the Meeting House. This document contains practical information about the Gathering as well as material to help you prepare for Yearly Meeting.  The information contained in the brochure is also available now on the website www.quaker.org.uk/ym along with a PDF version of the brochure and a PDF version of the preparation materials.
The theme for the Gathering is Listening, prophecy and reconciliation: allyship in a climate emergency.   This theme was discerned by young Friends on Junior Yearly Meeting Arrangements Committee and we have welcomed their leadership. The suggested resources contained on the website and in the brochure include links to podcasts on allyship, climate change and activism as well as other written resources.  We hope to build on these resources between now and the Gathering.
Also available on the website is the draft outline timetable. Financial help is available from the Meeting and Britain Yearly Meeting. Don’t let the cost stop you from going.
