Becoming Friends: Living & learning with Quakers

Posted by Admin (Margo) on January 26, 2012 at 6:00 PM

Becoming Friends is a course for those who are new to Quakerism, which combines opportunities to find out about the Quaker way and reflect on your own spiritual journey with optional support from experienced Quaker 'companions'.


We held the introductory session of this course Friday the 15th of April and have decided to meet every two or three weeks throughout the summer until the end of August (with a mid-term review). We're all aware that not everyone can make every session but the course is flexible enough to accommodate other commitments.


If you would like any further information about this course there is a free demonstration online at http://moodle.woodbrooke.org.uk or contact Linda Green if you need to know more about our local arrangements.

We have now completed our current course of Becoming Friends, covering the topics of Faithful Diversity, The Sacred in the Everyday and Speaking of God. It has been a rewarding experience for everyone and we hope to build on this with a Being Friends initiative in the near future. We may also return to Becoming Friends and look at further topics.
