BRITAIN YEARLY MEETING
YORK AREA MEETING
QV122

There are five Quaker meetings in the York area.

Three of these are in York itself, the largest based in Friargate. Around York, members of the Religious Society of Friends (commonly known as Quakers) worship and work together as York Area Meeting.

Our Quaker Meeting Houses are not only home to thriving Quaker meetings, but also a community resource – meeting places for many community groups and organisations.

Friends have completed a survey of sustainability initiatives, opportunities and activities within the Area Meeting.

Themed chapters now tell of local activism and awareness amongst Quakers.

Quakers share a way of life rather than a set of beliefs.  We seek to experience God directly, within ourselves and in our relationships with others and the world around us.

Following changes in government rules we are able to resume Quaker worship in our meeting houses. So far Harrogate and Friargate have agreed to meet again at the usual times, including breakfast meeting at Friargate. Worship using Zoom conferencing continues at our meetings. For more details, contact Local Meetings.

Friargate elders recently updated the form we use to record information about our funeral wishes. Forms are stored at Friargate Meeting house and at home. They can record just the details of next of kin. but there is also an opportunity to convey other preferences about the funeral itself.

Copies can be downloaded by clicking on the image, or visit our Burial Committee page.

York Area Meeting and its constituent Local Meetings is making new arrangements for their web presence.

A new website for the Area Meeting is in planning.

Local Meetings will be managing separate websites. Links to these new websites can already be found on their pages on this website. Room bookings and information will also be via these websites. This included Friargate meeting house. (Information on YourFriargate will also be transferred to the new Friargate website.)

 

For the present, our current website will also continue to be available. Further information will be provided in due course.
