Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Pre-Gathering Events

Follow the links below to see more details for these events before the 2020 FGC Virtual Gathering. Gathering registrants may add Pre-Gathering events to their registrations through June 25. Drop-in participation is possible for the AYF retreat only, and drop-ins will be charged the retreat fee. 

Retreat for People of Color and their Families

An opportunity for People of Color and multiracial families to come together to share their Quaker experience and create a supportive community in preparation for and throughout the Gathering. (Friday-Sunday) Open only to Friends attending the Gathering.

Adult Young Friends Retreat 

Adult Young Friends (age 18-35) will hold a retreat to continue building our community. This year the AYF program will take place on the weekend preceding Gathering. This decision was made so that AYFs who would like to participate in the larger Gathering program during the week will have an opportunity to do so. We have tried to preserve the spirit of the AYF program, focusing the weekend activities on building community and spending time together. We hope that you'll join us!
