We take inspiration from Jo Cox’s quote,
“We have more in common than that which divides us.”

GREAT GET TOGETHER at Epping Poster to print and share
We are playing catch up a bit but just still in May – the latest Epping Newsletter – May 2017
A big focus in this issue are the series of study sessions we have completed as part of the wide move across the Society to read Quaker Faith and Practice as we start to consider if it might need revision. You can find the full text of the current edition of Quaker Faith and Practice online.
Epping Quakers are lucky to have a beautiful simple space in which to meet.
We share this space with a number of regular hirers who run courses, healthy living groups and a wide range of activities. We offer a friendly, flexible space (accessible to pushchairs and wheelchairs) with handy side rooms and the use of a kitchen for hot drinks.
At present the Meeting House is available for regular hire both Monday and Wednesday during the day and most evenings. You can see more about our rooms and pricing on our website.

The red book pictured on the table above is called Quaker Faith & Practice (QF&P). This book is an attempt to express Truth through the vital personal and corporate experience of Friends. It is largely composed of extracts: a fitting way of expressing the breadth of Quaker theology. It also describes the current structures of Britain Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (to which Epping Meeting belongs).
Epping Friends are joining in a wider initiative amongst Quakers in Britain to read and consider QF&P. The aim is for us to better know the contents and increase our understanding what we do and why. QF&P is a living text and subject to revision (we are currently on the 5th edition).
Study sessions follow after Meeting for Worship with upcoming sessions:
Sunday 8th November: QF&P Ch.23 Social Responsibility
Sunday 6th December: QF&P Ch.3 General Counsel on Church Affairs
Sunday 10th January: QF&P Ch. 2 Approaches to God – worship and prayer
Sunday 14th February: QF&P Ch. 5 Other Quaker groupings
As with Meeting for Worship they are open to all. You can find the full text of QF&P online and there are plenty of copies at the Meeting House.
