Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) has relaunched the World Quaker Day Website to celebrate the 5th annual day of international Quaker celebration. We have updated the look and feel of the site and added more resources to help Friends plan their activities on the day. We will continue to add to the website over the coming months. Join the Quaker family around the world in worship and celebration!
FWCC invites you to join Quakers around the world on first Sunday in October for World Quaker Day. 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 website.
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/ FWCC will post them on this web site so that you can see what other churches and meetings were doing on the same day. 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.
