Event description

Description

We are trying something new! This spring, we are encouraging more young adult participation in Living Faith which is a one-day all-ages gathering featuring workshops, fellowship, and worship for Quakers from across New England.

On Friday April 5th young adults (ages 18-35) who are seeking more time to connect with peers in the Quaker movement can gather at Allen's Neck Meeting (Dartmouth, MA) for fellowship, connective activities, small group sharing, and sleeping over on the meetinghouse floor.

On Saturday April 6th after a simple breakfast we'll carpool over to the Living Faith gathering with 100+ Friends of all ages for a day of community building, experiential learning and worship. See a complete list of workshop offerings here.

In the late afternoon we will pack up again and go to New Bedford, MA for a walking tour of local Quaker history and as well as history of the abolition movement in the area. This will be followed by dinner at an all ages Quaker potluck. After this, we will gather for another night of young adult only fellowship, small group sharing, and relaxing at a local church in New Bedford.

On Sunday morning we will be worshiping with New Bedford Friends in their historic meetinghouse.

This retreat is for young adults (ages 18-35) who are Quaker or who want to explore the Quaker way. Young Adult Friends (YAF) retreats are are oppurtunity to "try on" Quaker spiritual practices, to connect with peers in the Quaker movement, to enjoy time spent in fun & worshipful togetherness, and to deepen our spiritual friendships with one another.

We ask for a $7 deposit to hold your space. You will have an opportunity to indicate the additional amount you are led to pay towards the retreat. If the deposit is a burden for you, please contact Nia Thomas at Nia@neym.org. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Your payment covers the cost of the Living Faith gathering and by submiting this registration you will automatically be registered for Living Faith (so no need to fill out a second registration).

This retreat is pay as led (sliding scale, pay what fits your budget contributing as you are able). We use these suggestions which reflect direct costs. Please let interest, not finances, determine your attendance.

Please submit one form per person. Registration ends March 31th. If you have any questions, please contact Nia Thomas at Nia@neym.org.
