Read the reports from World Quaker Day 2018 to see how the event was celebrated around the world.

Quakers around the world celebrated World Quaker Day, in its 5th year. The theme, Crossing Cultures, Sharing Stories drew us into our shared experience of worship, celebrating our wonderful diversity of expression. Church to church, meeting to meeting, country to country, and section to section, we feel the power of God collecting us into a faithful family. We welcome all expressions of Quaker worship!

Submit your report using this form or by email.

Whatever you did as a worshiping community, we hope you will share this with others.  It can be very simple – a description, a poem, a short video from a mobile phone, a few photos – we will post them on this web site so that you can see what other churches and meetings were doing on the same day.

We welcome your participation in World Quaker Day. We are grateful for all you bring to the Quaker world.
