If one or more Quakers meet with a few others for Worship on a regular basis, this would normally be called a Worshipping Group. If the group is larger and meets for Worship more regularly they may decide to take on some administrative obligations and become a Local Meeting which would have a Clerk, Treasurer and some other positions, depending on their needs, and would meet for business occasionally. The Local Meeting is guided by our Handbook of Practice and Procedure, which sets out more detail of our administrative structure and how we normally operate.
