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.
There were several items of business. After news of Friends, we discussed Tomasz Kowalski, who is building a Quaker group in Poland. He was in England recently and raised the matter of translating some early writings…Continue

Friends may recall Tomasz Kowalski, a Friend from Torun Poland who visited England during 4th and 5th month months of this year. He wished to make contact with Friends here, and approached New Foundation Fellowship. Eventually we met at Bromley Local Meeting in South East London. Following Meeting, Tomasz spoke to us about his work among ex-prisoners in Poland. Later he joined our Gathering in Ripley and spoke of it as a wonderful experience.
Tomasz returned to Poland with the…Continue

This may be the time- a few days after returning from the New Foundation Gathering at Woodbrooke- to express some thoughts concerning both the past and the future.
It was good to meet, and spend time with, those who had given not only their time, but their lives, to carrying out the work which Lewis Benson and others started. 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

Welcome to the New Foundation Web site. Please feel free to get involved in the site by asking questions and posting your own blogs, photos and video clips.
Incidentally, have you met up or know, with Simon Watson, who lives in Greenwich? He's been involved in NFF in the past, and would be a useful contact.
Thanks for the comment you left on my page. I am glad to know of your involvement and activity. I don't think I have ever met Richard Langford, but I do know Simon and Julie Watson. Ellis.
Thank you for your message Malcolm. I agree with you that we should be sharing the Christian Quaker message with other Christians. I think the conditions are right for it to be well received in many churchs (not all obviously). Shalom, Stuart.
Things seem to be shifting among some Evangelicals. I think this began in the 1970s with the publication of the Mennonite John Howard Yoder's 'The Politics of Jesus' this has prompted a greater interest in a peace church theology and concern for the poor and outcast. In the US this position is represented by the Sorjourners magazine.
So pleased to hear this news, Malcolm. I would love to join you in Meeting for Worship sometime, thank you. I do hope you, and anyone else who may wish to, will be able to make it to Ely in 10th Month. It will be good to meet up with you and hear of the progress you are making. :) In Him, Sue
Thank you Malcolm.
I will follow the Spinoza material up.
I know Bevis Marks well but I think there are quite a few myths that have been allowed to grow up around it. It looks more like the Quaker refused to keep money in excess of the original estimate rather than not taking a profit per se. I've a very pedantic footnote on this in a forthcoming book.
I do hope our paths cross again soon. As I said, I really am keen to get down to London, when I can - though this summer is hideously busy with teaching. It was very good to meet you.
Malcom, Thanks for the update concerning Tomasz, translation of material into Polish, and possible opening of opportunities in Poland.
There may be an opportunity developing over here for me and another friend to hold a series of meetings at an Evangelical Friends Church in southeastern Colorado. If it comes about, it will probably be next spring.
Malcom, this is good news about your opportunity to speak to the women's group. I feel a stirring of Life within that will not be stopped if we stand faithful in what we are given to do. I have been moved to pray "thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven," but am given to understand that the Father's will and the Father's kingdom must come in me and in us before it can do so on Earth. I am aware of my inabilities and know that if anything of good comes of the opportunities ahead, it will not be because of my strength, wit, wisdom, and charisma.
My apologies for the rant, I think it more necessary for me to be reminded of these things than for me to tell them to you.
Malcolm, I have the email address Velvet used when she applied for membership in the website: firstname.lastname@example.org . I did not approve her membership because I found her answers to be so confused. If it would be of use to you I can forward to you her correspondence. It might be of use to you. (Or is that some breach of etiquette?)
No, I have not received anything regarding the recent worker's gathering.
