We will be celebrating World Quaker Day on October 3, 2021.  Our theme: Resilience and hope: drawing strength from our Quaker faith.

Every year across our churches, meetings, countries, and sections, we feel the power of God connecting us into a faithful family. We celebrate all expressions of Quaker worship!

This year we have opportunities for online worship (both programmed and semi-programmed) around the world, ideas for how to celebrate in your local meetings/churches/worship groups as well as question prompts to help you explore the theme in more details.

Question Prompts to explore the WQD theme:

This year, for World Quaker Day, we are focusing on the theme Resilience and hope: Drawing strength from our Quaker faith. Together, or alone, we invite you to explore this theme and share reflections with Friends around the world.

By the end of World Quaker Day 2021, we hope to have gathered stories, pictures, and messages of how our Quaker faith offers strength to Friends across the branches.

We have a series of questions to help enable you, and your Meeting/Church to explore the World Quaker Day theme:

  • How do you understand resilience and hope? Is this different from your Quaker neighbour?
  • What elements of your Quaker faith enable you to have resilience and hope?
  • How does being part of an international Quaker community help provide you with strength?

Please share your reports from the day by emailing [email protected]. If you have a video to share, please send it to [email protected] via WeTransfer. If you prefer to use socials, you can tag us on social media using #WQD #WorldQuakerDay2021

We look forward to hearing your reflections, and learning what helps you have resilience and hope through your Quaker faith.
