Symud Ymlaen Report Released
In October 2019, the four constituent Area Meetings (AMs) of Meeting of Friends in Wales (MFW) appointed a group to research ways of simplifying the Quaker structures in Wales and the Marches. Each AM and MFW appointed a member and a trustee, and Lesley Richards from Worcester & Shropshire AM was appointed to convene and clerk their meetings.
The Group’s report is now available, and can be found below. Every member of the four AMs will have received a summary, and the full report and its appendices are available on various websites including MFW.
Each AM will discuss the report in early September, and communicate with each other and MFW by minute. The Report will form the main item of business at MFW’s meeting on 24th October 2020.
All Friends are encouraged to read at least the summary of the report and engage with the discernment of how to move forward. The proposal should enable Quakers in Wales and the Marches to release time and energy and the enthusiasm of Friends for the tasks of the spirit.
