World Quaker Day

21 July 2022

World Quaker Day is an annual event to celebrate the diversity of global Quakerism and build connections to make our community stronger.

This year, every Friends church or meeting is encouraged to send or receive visitors to or from another Quaker group, to bring greetings, build relationships and share ideas.

Lang’ata Friends Church in Nairobi has been confirmed as lead World Quaker Day hosts for the Africa Section, and will will welcome both virtual and in-person visitors from other countries.

Quaker leaders in Kenya have also proposed a Bible quote to support the day:  “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14). All Friends are invited to use this as part of spiritual preparation.

If you would like to be part of World Quaker Day 2022, either by visiting another Quaker group or welcoming Friends to yours, please sign up using this form.
