Regional Meetings

Local Meetings and Worshipping Groups are drawn together in a series of Regional Meetings, which are the basic administrative bodies for Quakers in Australia. Regional Meetings are largely structured along State and Territory lines, although the Northern Territory is combined with South Australia, and Canberra Regional Meeting also covers the southern part of New South Wales. Regional Meetings meet regularly for business purposes and have a number of officers and committees. They are responsible for membership matters, for considering various business subjects of their own and for the whole of Australia, and for raising money. They, too, are guided by our Handbook of Practice and Procedure in Australia.

Quakers and COVID-19

During COVID-19, most Friends around Australia have been meeting online. As restrictions ease in some places, some Friends are now meeting in person. This sometimes changes from week to week. You can find more information about how Friends are currently meeting (for worship, for singing, for poetry, for walking, etc.) by visiting the relevant Regional Meeting page below and contact the Clerk to find out what's happening in your region.
