World Quaker Day 2nd October 2022

World Quaker Day will take place on 2 October 2022 with the theme Becoming the Quakers the World Needs.

Sign up here to take part by visiting another Quaker group or welcoming Friends to yours!

World Quaker Day is an annual event where we celebrate the diversity of Quakerism around the world and build connections to make our community stronger.

This year, every Friends Church or Meeting is encouraged to send or receive visitors to or from another Quaker group, to bring greetings, build relationships and share ideas.

Intervisitation today is the easiest it has ever been, with many Quakers meeting online or in hybrid form. To make it even easier, sign up online and we can share details of Quaker groups especially hoping for visitors on the day. Alternatively you might like to visit in person, which we can also help with.

South Belfast Quaker Meeting is one of the meetings hosting a meeting for worship on behalf of FWCC-EMES that can be joined online.

If you would like to be part of World Quaker Day 2022, either by visiting another Quaker group or welcoming Friends to yours, please sign up using this form.

In preparation for the day, here’s a video with Tim Gee, General Secretary of Friends World Committee for Consultation inviting Friends to take part in World Quaker Day.
