Who do we think we are? - preview

At a barren meeting? Steve Cappleman has some suggestions on how to improve the situation

Nationally and locally BYM is in a different place from four years ago
  • There's growing confidence around outreach which has been caused by, and lead to, two oversubscribed Big Outreach Conferences and the dramatic spread of Quaker Quest
  • Indeed 27 Quaker Quests will be running this autumn and there have been 370 requests for the new National Quaker Week resource packs
  • All evidence of change at the grass roots of the Society as we are led in new, exciting directions
  • Both the latter initiatives, discerned and nurtured within the UK, are spreading overseas
  • An example is Australia, where Quaker Quests are planned, as is a Quaker Week running concurrently with ours
  • Clearly when we have the courage to trust, test and act upon our leadings, wonderful things happen

  • Steve Cappleman
