New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.
Friends Share Fellowship and Outreach Experiences

Emerging Practices in Quaker Outreach

This gathering, organized as a round table sharing, highlighted the work of ten Friends from both within NEYM and beyond.  Our day presented a panel on Getting Ready for the Adventure of Quaker Outreach, a panel on Trying New Things, and finally three presentations on Weaving Families into our Meetings and Religious Education and Service Learning as modes for Deepening Engagement.

The program for our day, the handouts from the presenters, and finally a collection of other Quaker Outreach examples included in the folder are attached below.

This day was so rich and enlivening, we plan to host a weekend conference on Quaker Outreach April 29-May 1, 2016 at Woolman Hill.

In the meantime, let's keep the conversation going! Contact Beth Collea, Religious Education and Outreach Coordinator of NEYM.
