Exploring Quakerism Monday June 13th 2016
8.00pm – 9.30pm

This session will be led by Linda Hoy from the Sheffield Central Quaker Meeting.

What does Quakerism mean to you? Porridge? Pacifism? Puritanism?

During this evening session Linda will share with us something of her own spiritual journey from an Anglican background to her own discovery of Quakerism, its power of silence and its insistence that there is something of God in everyone.

This evening session will begin at 8.00pm and finish at 9.30pm. Refreshments will be served from 7.30pm.
