A framework for action: Together in worship and witness

The final version of the Long-term Framework for British Quakers over the next six years has been released.

Now called: ‘A framework for action: Together in worship and witness’, the document is being sent to all Local and Area Meeting clerks, as well as members of Meeting for Sufferings. It details the seven priorities that will shape Quaker work and action until 2014, as well as changes in the way Friends should work both centrally and locally. It emphasises the importance of Quakers working together and the role of the central body as a supporter linking Friends together, rather than drawing them in to central work.

Presented in an attractive booklet format, the framework makes use of simple, bright images to represent each of the priorities, in keeping with Britain Yearly Meeting visuals from recent years.

The document is being sent to every Meeting in Britain Yearly Meeting, with five copies initially going to smaller Meetings and ten copies going to larger Meetings.

A full analysis of the framework will appear in the print and online editions of next week’s issue of the Friend.
