Country of the Week: Kenya
Kenya has the biggest group of Quakers anywhere in the world, with 133,625 recorded members in 15 Yearly Meetings.

Kenyan Quaker worship is mainly in the evangelical tradition but Nairobi YM is unique in holding simultaneous silent and ministered Meetings so that Friends can choose between the two and maybe experience a little of both!
