Quakerism 101

This is a course for people who want to delve more deeply into Quaker insights about faith, worship, testimony and community. It is an opportunity to reflect on our Quaker ways, and to explore, in community, how this fits with you and how you fit with Quakerism. We will explore topics such as

  • God and Worship, Testimony, Leadings and Concerns
  • How Quakers in Australia are organised and the Quaker presence in the wider world
  • The continuing relevance of Early Quakers and our Christian origins
  • Peculiar Quaker language and its underlying significance
  • The sensitive topic of Membership

At the end of the course you will have a stronger sense of who Quakers are, your own spiritual journey, and have more words to describe this to others.

Course Cost: $768 Single $708 Double/Twin including accommodation, meals
