Invitation to Australia Yearly Meeting, July 2021

Australian Friends gather each year for their Yearly Meeting for Worship for Business. Also, for learning, sharing and living in Quaker community for a week.  Each year we invite a Friend, known as our Visiting Friend, from the Asia-West Pacific Section of FWCC. The intention of the Friend’s visit is to increase the links between Australian Quakers and other Friends in the AWPS region.

We invite applications from interested Friends who will be asked to:

  • participate in the Yearly Meeting
  • give a presentation to Australian Friends sharing their Quakerism, Quaker community and culture
  • travel to other parts of Australia to share with Quakers

On returning home we would like them to share with Friends and others about their experiences in Australia.

Costs:

Australian Friends cover the costs for one Friend – visa, travel insurance, airfares, internal fares, accommodation, meals and incidentals.

Time:

Two to four weeks in June-July including Yearly Meeting 2021 (exact dates of YM to be confirmed)

If you wish to be considered, please send the attached application which must include:

  1. A simple background statement about your life and interests, especially as a Quaker
  2. What you hope to share with Australia Yearly Meeting
  3. How the visit is likely to benefit Friends in your community
  4. How the visit can support your work in your locality or region

We also expect a supporting minute or statement from one of:

  • your Quaker Meeting
  • the FWCC AWPS executive, or
  • another Quaker source

Communication:
We need to know the best way to be in touch with you. We can Zoom, Skype and email or phone so we can talk to you.

Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you.
