Rainbow Quaker Meeting

Come and discover what Quakers do!
The Quakers - who exactly are they? What do they do? Doesn't it have something to do with oats? Maybe something to do with peace activism? Wait, aren't they like the Amish?
You are invited to the first Quaker Midsumma Meeting! Meet Rainbow Friends and some allies, spend some time with us in silent worship, and discover what it is we exactly do and believe. Many LGBTQIA+ people find their spiritual home with us, while others are just passing through. No two Friends are the same! Whether you are looking for a spiritual home, already have one, are unsure, or are just plain curious, you are welcome at the Quaker Midsumma Meeting.
The session will include a light afternoon tea.
The Religious Society of Friends (or Quakers) is a religious movement that emerged in the 17th century. We have no official creeds, dogmas or hierarchy. Instead, we obtain spiritual guidance from our personal experience of the Divine (God, Spirit) and if needed the collective discernment of the Society. Quakers hope that our lives show simplicity, peace, integrity, community, earthcare, and equality as outward testimony to lives guided by Spirit. Since the 1970s, Quakers in Australia have supported the rights for LGBTQIA+ people to live their lives openly and equally, recognising committed relationships regardless of orientation.
