Continuing Sessions

Community and Governance Gatherings

In the Five Year Plan, we decided to include everyone, more often, in the decision making of the community and to bring all of us together in fellowship. The space to do that, minimally twice a year, is Continuing Sessions. Every Friend of every age from every meeting is encouraged to participate in these one-day sessions.

One session is expected to be at a location outside of Philadelphia and one is expected to be at our yearly meeting House at 4th and Arch Streets in Philadelphia. If there are more sessions their locations will be decided by the planners.

Continuing Sessions offers the time and space to:

  • worship
  • gather for meeting for worship with attention to business
  • work corporately on leadings of the yearly meeting
  • engage Friends in substructures of the yearly meeting
  • have fun and know one another
