Although the format is online, registration is required to assist us in organising the Yearly Meeting. An outline of the planned programme is part of the registration form. Registered Friends will be notified of any updates.
Participants should please log in at least 10 minutes before each session begins. There will be comfort breaks in the sessions, and time for reviewing minutes, but these are not included in the Programme yet. The Children’s Meeting will not have a special YM programme as it already has an ongoing programme that will continue as normal. A YM document containing all submitted reports will be available from 16 July. It is extremely important that attendees read the YM document beforehand (and discuss it in their Meetings), as there will be no time to sit and read it while the zoom meeting is in progress.
Please download the registration form here and send it to Heath no later than 31 May 2021.
