York Area Meeting for Business
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.
Area Meeting 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.
