Accompanying: 2016

27-30 May, 2016 at Friends House, London

Accompanying was an opportunity for 15-18 year olds to attend Yearly Meeting 2016. There were 10 participants who attended Yearly Meeting sessions and evening social activities, along with for adult volunteers.

The silence was extremely intense and the contributions were profound and moved me a lot.

I found participating in Yearly Meeting challenging at first but ultimately rewarding.

I felt connected to and respected by older Quakers.

The session about testing a concern was very inspiring as it showed how you personally could begin to make a difference no matter how small.
