What is a Quaker Funeral? Past present and future
12 June 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The End of Life Support Group invites you to an evening of discovery, questions and answers, and sharing. We hope to create a comfortable and friendly space where we can think about appropriate preparation for the end of our life. There will be a chance to experience the traditional Quaker process of ‘meeting for clearness’ during the evening.
The programme will be something like this
5.30 refreshments – sandwiches, cake, tea/coffee
6.00 Talk by Richard Hoare (our Area Meeting archivist) on Quaker traditions around death and funerals, and how they have changed over the centuries, including recent and current trends.
6.30 Questions and answers, initial reflections
7.00 short break for a drink
7.15 experience of a ‘meeting for clearness’
7.45 closing worship
There will be a notice on the board to sign up, so we know numbers for refreshments.
