As Quakers we hope that our lives speak peace, equality and respect for the earth. In addition to the holding of public Meetings for Worship, East Kent Quakers are involved in many community projects and activities. Contact us if you would like to help or are seeking more information.
Dedicated page on our Quakers in Britain website about our response to the situation: Ukraine | Quakers in Britain
Quakers in East Kent are upholding all those involved impacted by the situation in Ukraine. Many Quakers are joining with our local communities in vigils and services; some Friends are linking with Quakers around the World in online Meetings; and some are in contact with Friends in Kiev and in Friends House, Moscow. If you would like to know more, please contact us.
Many Meetings active involvement in bodies such as Kent Refugee Action Network has led to various initiatives.
Friends across Kent are actively translating their faith into action within Quaker organisations or in collaboration with others sharing the same concerns, such as poverty, sustainability, climate change and mental health. In these ways we strive to be a loving community which is open and welcoming to all.
Despite the severe restrictions on gathering together during the pandemic, many Friends continued to be involved in activities and organisations that individuals feel exemplify our Quaker Testimonies. These include participating in Extinction Rebellion actions, campaigning for better treatment of refugees, and supporting the vulnerable
in their local communities in many different ways.
