Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Pre-Gathering Events

Pre-Gathering retreats give participants a chance to connect in a deeper way before the Gathering week begins. Most years there are pre-Gathering retreats for People of Color & their Families, Adult Young Friends, and Quakers & Business. Updates about program offerings for 2022 will be posted in winter 2022. 

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, July 1 - Sunday, July 3, 2022) Open only to Friends attending the Gathering.

Adult Young Friends Retreat 

Adult Young Friends (age 18-35) will hold a one day retreat to continue building our community. (Saturday, July 2, 2022)

Quakers and Business Conference

Quakers are doing great things right now in the business world.  Let’s share our challenges and work to explore solutions.  Let’s examine topics about work and spirituality that we as Friends infrequently discuss in our monthly meetings for worship and in our professional lives. (Dates TBD)
