Join the Quaker family around the world in worship and celebration!
Sponsored by Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC)
FWCC invites you to join Quakers around the world for World Quaker Day, in its 5th year. The theme, Crossing Cultures, Sharing Stories draws us into our shared experience of worship, celebrating our wonderful diversity of expression. Church to church, meeting to meeting, country to country, and section to section, we feel the power of God collecting us into a faithful family. We welcome all expressions of Quaker worship!
How will you celebrate World Quaker Day? Ideas about how to work with the theme can be found on the Resources page.
Whatever you do as a worshiping community, we hope you will share this with others through FWCC. It can be very simple – a description, a poem, a short video from a mobile phone, a few photos – we will post them on this web site so that you can see what other churches and meetings were doing on the same day.
Visit the resources section for ideas and resources. See how others have shared in past years. We look forward to sharing a revised publication, Friends Around the World, with yearly meetings and worship group contact information. It will be available in print and online.
We welcome your participation in World Quaker Day. We are grateful for all you bring to the Quaker world.
The purpose of the Friends World Committee for Consultation is to encourage fellowship among all the branches of the Religious Society of Friends.
The Quaker community circles the globe, spanning a rich diversity of regional cultures, beliefs and styles of worship.
FWCC, through its four section offices, runs programmes in different regions, uniting Friends around the world through Spirit-led fellowship.
Our association with the Quaker United Nations Offices offers a means to monitor and present Quaker contributions to world affairs. Our consultation extends to those of other faiths through work with the World Council of Churches.
Answering God’s call to universal love, FWCC brings Friends of varying traditions and cultural experiences together in worship, communications, and consultation, to express our common heritage and our Quaker message to the world. (approved 2006)
