2024 Area Meetings

AM lunchtime

There will be 6 Area Meetings during 2024. They will follow a similar pattern to previous years.

The January meeting will be hosted by Sheffield Nether Edge Meeting on Sunday 14th January from 13.15 to 15.45. Friends from our 4 Local Meetings – Balby Doncaster, Hope Valley, Nether Edge, Sheffield Central – come together to consider matters that concern us all. All members and attenders are welcome, including anyone who hasn’t been to an AM before.

The meeting is face-to-face only, at Shirley House, Nether Edge, 31 Psalter Lane, Sheffield, S11 8YL. Shared lunch from about 12.15. Nether Edge Friends provide soup but please bring vegetarian (ideally plant based) food to share.

We will be considering membership matters, and receiving reports from a number of national meetings. We will consider a proposal to move towards a single charitable body for all Quakers in Yorkshire. This would replace the 7 AM charitable trusts which currently oversee matters such as finance, employment, property and legal compliance across the region.

NB the actual times of each meeting will be posted here when they are confirmed.
