About

Quaker Spring invites all Friends hungry for spiritual community, of all ages, to spend time in worship, reflection, conversation, and play. We hope to bring together Friends from all branches of Quakerism, to share what Spirit-led Quakerism is about at its core–and to experience it together.

Quaker Spring 2017 will be held at Oakwood Friends School with various housing options (dorm, camping, etc.).

Friends are welcome to attend part of the gathering. Please come for whatever portion of the week you are able and feel led to attend.

The “un-preprogrammed” daily program includes:

  • Bible reading and study
  • Waiting worship
  • Afternoons free for rest, play, workshops, opportunities for clearness & support for ministries.
  • Evening time to reflect/search together for God’s voice around issues of concern to Friends arising out of the group.
  • For more on the “shape of our days” at Quaker Spring, see the sample daily schedule on the website.
