Young People's Programme 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 37 young people aged 11-15.
The participants at this year's event considered the theme:
Young Quakers then and now, in a diverse and changing world.
This linked to the focus of Yearly Meeting and provided the opportunity for YPP to contribute to the decision 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 filmed (see below) and then shown in the Yearly Meeting Session, where it was decided to begin the journey of revision.

YPP Minute and photos.
At the end of YPP the group had a final Meeting for Worship for Business where they agreed a minute which expressed their experience of the event. This minute captures the 'sense of the meeting' and is a collective decision by this group expressed in the Minute.
The photos from YPP 2018 and video of the minute on the revision of Quaker Faith and Practice are now available on Flickr
