Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
This year our annual conference will take place in London and will be a one day event.
The theme will be "did George Fox get it right?" which is the title of a talk which Allistair Lomax gave at Britain Yearly Meeting Last year. The day's events will include untimed Meeting for Worship, a question and answer session and a bookstall.
The cost will be £10 per person payable on the day. It would however assist if those attending would contact me beforehand so that we can have make…Continue
The Workers' Gathering and Meeting for Business took place at Gloucester on 22nd September. The intended venue- Gloucester Meeting House - was not available as it had fallen victim to a fire. However, Ursula Windsor stepped in and provided wonderful hospitality.

It was clear that their commitment was beyond that which might be expected in the mundane affairs of everyday life. But they were not dealing with everyday…Continue
An even cursory glance at the content on this site would suggest to a bystander that there is a great deal of dissatisfaction with Britain Yearly Meeting, and Quakerism generally in this country. Can this be remedied? I think not. One of the big debates within BYM at present concerns what will happen in the future. A couple of people with whom I have discussed this have gone as far as trying to predict "how long is left".…Continue
' Now the whole earth had one language and few words. As men migrated from the east, they settled on a plain in the land of Babylon. "Come", they said to one another, "let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly." Then they had brick for stone and bitumen for mortar. "Let us build a city," they said, "and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves."
The Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. "Behold," he…Continue
