World Gathering of Young Friends

From around the world
many countries represented
Quakers come together for the World Gathering of Young Friends.
We meet on the campus of Lancaster University,
in Lancaster England to share with each other
our similarities and
differences in language,
culture, geography, and most

importantly, our forms of Quakerism

and how they influence our lives.
Lancaster sits in the heart of historic grounds of Quakerism.

Surrounding the area are Swarthmoor Hall
and meetinghouse, the Quaker tapestry, Firbank Fell,
Brigflatts meetinghouse, and Lancaster Castle and meetinghouse.
The castle is of historical significance
because that is where George Fox was jailed
repeatedly for his beliefs. Swarthmoor Hall was the host
of some of the first Quaker meetings and the home of a few of the founders of Quakerism.
Firbank Fell is where George fox often preached
the word of
and told others that there is that of God in everyone.
