We are Young Friends General Meeting –
a national community of young adult Quakers in Britain.
YFGM is a good way to make links with other Young Adult Quakers. We gather together for worship and to share interests. Our members regularly meet up between gatherings and plan extra social weekends too. YFGM is open to everybody between the ages of 18 and 30ish, and although we’re based in Britain we welcome visitors from overseas. We welcome newcomers of all varieties, from those who have grown up in a Quaker family, to those who are simply Quaker-curious, have recently started attending a Quaker Meeting or simply resonate with the core Quaker Values (Peace, Equality, Integrity, Truth, Sustainability and Simplicity)
