MEMBERSHIP SPREADSHEET TEMPLATE

In an attempt to keep membership lists up to date, all meetings have been requested to send the secretary an updated spreadsheet of members and attenders. Please click the link below to download an Excel file containing a template for your use.

Please note that the final column in the spreadsheet requests information regarding any NGOs with which Friends are involved, e.g. SAFCEI, AVP. This is as per the request made to MYRM 2017.

ELDERSHIP AND OVERSIGHT

Below is a link to the Meeting communications chapter in the BYM Eldership and Oversight Manual, With a Tender Hand, “Being in touch in a modern world”. While this is not fully applicable to Southern African Quakers, it is still a useful chapter to read, and is quite brief.

New England Yearly Meeting: New Resource on Quaker Outreach

Friends are exploring new ways to be present and available in the broader culture, offering the Quaker way for a life lived in the Light and a mode of seeking that together. Quaker outreach is a broad topic and there is a positive role for every Friend to play.
