Every Tuesday at 19:00 there is an opportunity for Quakers across London to worship and talk together. We hope that this will build up the sense of a London-wide community of Friends, especially as we consider new ways of governing ourselves. We know that many Friends have become reasonably comfortable with online worship by now, so it seems a good time to use it to reach out across geographic distances. We will have a mixture of worship, a short conversation starter and some time in groups. You can join or leave after the worship.
When: Tuesdays, 19:00 to 20:30
Where: on Zoom of course (with a waiting room on entry)

Meeting Format:

18:45 – 19:00 Opportunity for chat

19:00 Meeting for Worship – for 30 minutes or so; join quietly please

19:30 Brief welcomes, notices, time to arrive or leave for some

Lover of Souls by Journeymen Theatre

Venue: Kingston Quaker Centre Fairfield East, Kingston KT1 2PT

Refreshments at 18:30 Performance 19:30

What led a 17th century woman in her fifties to leave a comfortable home in a remote East Midlands region, to become a travelling Quaker Minister, enduring persecution and prison, confronting Cromwell and Charles II, making the dangerous Atlantic crossing several times and ending her days in Jamaica?
Hooton and other early Quakers experienced the English Civil war its aftermath in all its viciousness; indeed in terms of suffering and loss the English Civil War had a destructive impact greater than either of the two World Wars of the Twentieth century. Out of this crucible of war there emerged what historians usually call 'The Protestant Sects':- Ranters, Seekers, Baptists, Muggletonians and Fifth Monarchists and, of course, Quakers.
Looking at Hooton's life and sufferings as a Quaker casts a clear light into the tangled skein of seventeenth century religious belief, when the most important issue facing men and womenwas that of individual salvation. She and the early Quakers turned this issue on its head by advocatin and embracing a radical, practical and socialist theology. As the Quaker Epistle of 2021 says: 'Our Quaker forefathers were wild about their faith. And they challenged the establishment.....is it time to rewild our Quakerism? Hooton's answer would be a resounding 'Yea'!
Refreshments at 6:30 pm UK time, performance at 7:30 UK Time runs for about one hour.

Backdoor Parole by Journeymen Theatre

Venue: Kingston Quaker Centre, Fairfield East, Kingston, KT1 2PT

Refreshments at 18:30 Performance at 19:30

 

Ron's spent a lifetime in prison and the outside world is no longer beckoning. He, like thousands of others, will see out his days inside. He's come to terms with that but being part of the UK's ageing prison population is bringing its own challenges, particularly for those whose job it is to make the 'system' function.
Kathy becomes part of Ron's life as a newly appointed Quaker prison chaplain. Ron is something of a spiritual tourist, having visited a range of faith -based destinations before arriving at Kathy's Quaker group. She in turn is both idealistic and overwhelmed by what she experiences.
The play explores the complexities of the UK penal system and how this impacts upon both inmates and those who work within it. In articular it exposes the pressures and stresses caused by the increasing number of elderly men who will see out their days in prison cells.
Resfreshments at 1830 UK time Performance at 1930.

Measurements for Climate Action: this I know experimentally.

Venue: Kingston Quaker Centre, KT1 2PT

Emma Woolliams, Chair of the European Metrology Network for Climate and Ocean Observation will talk about how observations of the climate system and human greenhouse gas emissions provide a feedback loop for decision makers in governments and industry and how her team’s work is part of ensuring the reliability of those observations. She will discuss the link between science and policy and reflect on how her Quaker faith gives her the difficult but stubborn optimism needed as society rises to the challenges of climate change. There will then be questions and discussion of our reactions to what she has said.  

Emma Woolliams is a lifelong Friend who worships at Kingston Meeting.  She’s a departmental head of science at the National Physical Laboratory and chair of the European Metrology Network for Climate and Ocean Observation. 

The event is open to all. Please invite anyone you know who might be interested in Emma’s talk. Mask!  Test before coming.  If unvaccinated - better to stay away.

There will be a light buffet supper  from 6pm. The talk will start at 7pm, followed by discussion.

Every Tuesday at 19:00 there is an opportunity for Quakers across London to worship and talk together. We hope that this will build up the sense of a London-wide community of Friends, especially as we consider new ways of governing ourselves. We know that many Friends have become reasonably comfortable with online worship by now, so it seems a good time to use it to reach out across geographic distances. We will have a mixture of worship, a short conversation starter and some time in groups. You can join or leave after the worship.
When: Tuesdays, 19:00 to 20:30
Where: on Zoom of course (with a waiting room on entry)

Meeting Format:

18:45 – 19:00 Opportunity for chat

"We did conclude among ourselves to settle a meeting, to see one another’s faces, and open our hearts one to another in the Truth of God" part of QfP 6.02

Short notice but I hope this will appeal to many of you.  We are going to hold a purely social gathering for London Quakers on Thursday 10th February from 1430 - 1700 in the George Fox room at Friends House.  Tea, coffee biscuits and conversation - plus some activities which we are still considering.   Come any time in the afternoon, leave when you want.   

Naturally, masks except when seated, LFT test yourself before you come, if you're unvaccinated consider avoiding this gathering.

In friendship and hoping to see many of you - of us.

Quaker anti-racism workshop

Venue: Kingston Quaker Centre

I am delighted to announce an Anti-Racism workshop for all attenders and members of KWAM. The workshop will take place on Saturday 12th February from 2pm to 5pm at the Kingston Quaker Centre. 

The workshop has been devised by Viv Grant with input from Dr Giles Barrow (a Quaker). The workshop itself will be led by Viv Grant. Viv is an amazing and hugely experienced leader working on Anti-Racism and related issues in the education sector. We are extremely lucky to have her lead this workshop.

This workshop is an opportunity for us to come together and will focus on:
 
- How racism distorts our psyche/soul and steps that can be taken towards healing and repair
- How the race socialisation process shapes personal responses to race and racism
- The impact personal race biographies have on our sense of wholeness and ability to act as agents of change


For full details and to register for the event please go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kwam-anti-racism-workshop-let-your-life-speak-soul-work-and-anti-racism-tickets-244315663727.


In preparation for the workshop we have asked people to complete a few tasks. You can see the tasks in the event details at the link given above.    Documents are available on The Penn.
