Quaker World Connections Committee

The purpose of this committee is to promote the work of Friends World Committee for Consultation  (FWCC) and in particular the Asia West Pacific Section (AWPS) among Australian Quakers. We also provide a connection to other Quaker bodies which are not affiliated with FWCC.

Purpose

to promote the work of FWCC and AWPS among Australian Quakers

to identify Concerns of Australian Friends that warrant QWCC’s attention, and brings those matters to either Standing Committee or Yearly Meeting for endorsement

to bring items of interest, such as  projects for support, to the attention of Quaker Service Australia

to discern Australia Yearly Meeting’s representation at AWPS and FWCC meetings

Within Australia, Australia Yearly Meeting has a national committee (QWCC) to support Quakers in the Asia West Pacific Area (AWPS) and also to link with the world wide Quaker community through Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC). See http://fwcc.world/category/fwcc-news for FWCC news. 

This committee consists of one Friend from each Regional Meeting appointed by Yearly Meeting who serves for four years, the Presiding Clerk and AYM Secretary, ex officio; any Australian office-holder within the structure of QWCC internationally; and either one or two Young Friends.
