Junior Yearly Meeting 2018
This event took place at the same time as Yearly Meeting, which is the annual meeting of Quakers in Britain. The event was attended by 59 young people aged 15-18.
The participants at this year's event considered the theme:
Quaker Faith and Practice. What are our beliefs and how can we express them?
This linked to the focus of Yearly Meeting and provided the opportunity for JYM to contribute to the decsion to revise Quaker Faith and Practice the book which guides Quaker work and worship. As a part of this the group had a Quaker Meeting for Worship for Business where they agreed a Minute which was read out in the Yearly Meeting Session, where it was decided to begin the journey of revision.
