Past Events

There are lots of Quaker activities and events for young people between the ages of 11-18. These pages provide a record of events that have happened in the last three years. This includes photos, videos, the Minutes and JYM Epistles

A Minute is record of an agreed response to an issue considered by participants; this is written by two of the young people on the event planning group. At Junior Yearly Meeting the minute comes from the group consider one item which relates to the adult theme, which is given to the adult event.

An Epistle is a summary of the event in the form of a letter to BYM (Britain Yearly Meeting), drafted by  two of the young people on the event planning group then agreed by the rest of the event. This is then read out at the adult event BYM.
