Invitation to apply to be a Visiting Friend

Invitation to Be a Visiting Friend from the Asia-West Pacific Section of FWCC, to Australia Yearly Meeting, July 2021

Australian Friends gather each year for their Yearly Meeting for Worship for Business. They also gather for learning, sharing and living in Quaker community for a week. 

Each year we invite a Friend, known as our Visiting Friend, from the Asia-West Pacific Section of FWCC. The intention of the Friend’s visit is to increase the links between Australian Quakers and other Friends in the AWPS region.

We invite applications from interested Friends who will be asked to:

  • participate in the Yearly Meeting
  • give a presentation to Australian Friends sharing their Quakerism, Quaker community and culture
  • travel to other parts of Australia to share with Quakers

Please find the application to be a Visiting Friend to Yearly Meeting 2021 here. If you would like to apply, complete the application (supplying all required information) and email it
