Help us find the right Friends to re-write the Book of Discipline
By 1 September
Central Nominations Committee is looking for Friends to serve on the committee which will rewrite the Book of Discipline (Quaker Faith & Practice). We do not want to miss Friends across Britain who are not known to us. They could be younger, less confident Friends. Or a stalwart member of your meeting who would never presume to put their name forwards. In all cases they will be well grounded Quakers, with a deep understanding of Quakerism. We ask you to put the names of those Friends forward. You can do this as an individual Friend or as a meeting.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the Friend’s name and their AM or worship group.

UK Peaceworkers 2 into 3 A big thank you!
We are very pleased to announce that we have exceeded our target and have been able to employ a third Peaceworker!
On top of this, because of the generosity of Friends we have
£6,560 towards the £28,592 cost of a third Peaceworker next year! We would like to thank all the Friends who supported this appeal. This year’s peaceworker placements will be
at Child Soldiers International, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s (CND) Peace Education Programme and British American Security Information Council (BASIC).
