Livestreaming

World Quaker Day

Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) invites you to join Quakers around the world to celebrate the 6th annual World Quaker Day on Sunday 6 October. 

The theme, Sustainability: Planting Seeds of Renewal for the World We Love draws us into our shared experience of earth care and the spiritual imperative to sustain life on earth. It is a chance to celebrate our wonderful diversity of expression, whilst at the same time offering an important opportunity to learn about Friends’ experiences of climate breakdown in other parts of the world. You might consider sharing a sustainability story from your meeting or church with another group of Friends elsewhere in the world and beginning a dialogue.

Please visit our website www.worldquakerday.org for resources, ideas on how to get involved and to share your story.
