York Area Quakers

Friends from our five local meetings come together six times a year as York Area Meeting for Business. Within Britain Yearly Meeting there are some 70 such Area Meetings.

An Area Meeting is responsible for matters of membership. It also appoints local elders and overseers and sends representatives to national Quaker bodies.

It appoints Friends to serve as trustees, the legal body managing the affairs of York Area Meeting as a charity.

The meeting consults on matters of current interest and occasionally invites speakers or organises other activities of interest to Friends.

Our business meetings are held in a spirit of shared worship. Decisions are taken and recorded in minutes made in accordance with the Quaker business method.

The Area Meeting is registered for charitable purposes and has a body of trustees appointed from its members. The relationship between the Area Meeting and its trustees is set out in a memorandum of understanding. (A copy of this is available below.) Accounts can be found on the Trustees Page.
