Words from Quaker Faith & Practice:

“Do you uphold those who are acting under concern, even if their way is not yours? Can you lay aside your own wishes and prejudices while seeking with others to find God’s will for them?”


Conference on Affordable and Sustainable Homes on
19 March 10 am - 4pm at Central Quaker Meeting House

A conference where we will have the opportunity to learn about the growing affordable housing crisis in Bristol and England and decide on what positive action we wish to take individually or collectively to build more affordable homes in Bristol and nationwide.

Dom Wood of 1625 Independent People, Keith Cowling of Bristol Community Land Trust, Ed Rowberry of Pontin Trust, David Lamb of Triodos Bank and others from the housing world have agreed to come and share from their own experience ideas of how as Friends we can make a small contribution that could make a large difference to creating affordable and sustainable homes in the future.
