Vibrancy in our meeting - Sun 29th 12 noon

Vibrancy in meeting visit

As you will all know, Sunday 29th sees the visit of Brian Fellowes from Quaker Life, who is part of a group exploring the topic of vibrancy in meetings. His visit will consist of a group questionnaire and discussion – and, much more importantly, cake at the start of the chat, and a shared lunch at the end. Contributions to both would be greatly appreciated, and indeed provide a rich example of how active and vibrant we are as a meeting.

Any questions, please contact myself ( or one of the clerks (
