AM at Nether Edge November 2016

Friends – the next Area Meeting on Saturday 26th November is a very special one. We shall meet, as last year, at St. Andrews Church, Psalter Lane, Nether Edge, Sheffield. After a morning of business, including reports from Quaker Life, Meeting for Sufferings and Area Meeting trustees, we shall enjoy a shared lunch (bring a contribution to share if you can), followed by our guest speaker, Juliet Prager, deputy recording clerk from Friends House. She will be opening up discussions on “Healing the Rifts after Brexit”. It is uppermost in many Quakers’ minds – how exactly we might respond to these divisions and the challenges ahead. So we hope you will join us for this important event.

The programme is as follows:

10.00 Arrivals and refreshments
10.30 Business Meeting
12.30 Lunch
13.30 Speaker – Juliet Prager “Healing the rifts from the Brexit vote”
14.00 Questions

14.15 Break into discussion groups:

We hope each discussion group will focus on various aspects – such as how the vote to leave affects peace, climate change, democracy, refugees and migrants, and relationships generally.

15.30 Feedback
Closing minute
15.45 Tea (and of course cake)
