44, 13 2, 2011

Informal study and discussion groups are held on a weekday evening starting with tea/coffee at 7.30 pm and finishing at 9.00 pm and anyone is welcome. Past themes included 'Deepening the life of the Spirit -- resources for spiritual practice', key passages from the Journal of George Fox, some questions in preparation for Yearly Meeting and the Sustainability Toolkit for our meeting. One series revisited our Quaker testimonies with sessions on 'Simplicity', 'Truth', 'Equality' and 'Peace'.

We also held a series of meetings entitled 'Becoming Friends'.  Some study groups looked at the question of 'Assisted dying and Living wills' and 'Responding to the refugee crisis'. We also learnt about aspects of the work of our Quaker Prison Chaplain. Last year, we also considered the concern fo Cornwall Area meeting for the decriminalisation of drugs for personal use. 

We are starting a new series of study groups in 2018. Our next study group is on  Thursday, 22nd March at 7.30 pm, on the topic of 'Faith and Doubt.
