Living Witness is a community that welcomes Friends who are actively discerning how we might respond to the unfolding climate and ecological crises, drawing on our Quaker values and practices. Central to this is nurturing a deepening spiritual exploration among Quakers and others, and supporting each other in the action and witness that may grow from this.

We hold a Quaker meeting focused on the Earth every Friday morning and a worship sharing session every Wednesday evening. See more information here

The Gathering was held over the weekend of 17-19 November bringing together Quakers from across the UK in a blended meeting of in-person Friends and Friends online. 

The main themes rising to the top by the close of this shared time together were: 

  • community and the importance of connectedness, supporting one another
  • indigenous values - learning about them and how they might be applied to our own lives
  • capitalism - what should replace it and the importance of using our imaginations to navigate our way to a new social system
