How the Quaker world is structured

In order to understand how Quakers are part of FWCC, it is important to note that equality is central to all Quaker networks, churches, meetings, and worship groups.

The desire for equality means that processes happen, and decisions are made, in a way that hopes to make sure everyone is listened to and represented. For example, someone who attends a local Quaker meeting might be nominated to serve on a committee for their local area meeting, which will then be heard at the yearly meeting, which is affiliated with FWCC, as a part of the world family of Friends.



FWCC was formed in order to connect Yearly Meetings around the world across the Quaker branches. We connect with Yearly Meeting clerks, to share epistles, news and opportunities.
